Recipe of the Week: Cumberland Rum Nicky
This may not sound like a recipe to celebrate British Pie Week, but it is and oh what a delicious specimen of pie it is!
This delicious dessert, packed full of dried fruit, ginger and rum is a classic dish from Cumberland in the Northwest of England.
The ports of Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport were at the centre of the UK run trade in the 18th century, importing rum, molasses and sugar from the Caribbean. The Cumbrians combined these imported ingredients to create this scrumptious pudding.
This is one of 130 regional recipes in our wonderful cookbook; Around Britain, back by popular demand.
