I'm making this! Thinking I might use some of my own champagne vinegar, and maybe a combo of orange and lemon zest. Love it!! ;o)

What size baking dish do you recommend? How much does the pudding rise in the oven?

Highly recommend you give it a bash.

The thought of that syrup is making me salivate. That sweet-sour play with the apricot nearby can only be fantastic.
