Nan's Mystery Recipe

I have no idea what this recipe is for or how to cook it, but a scrap of paper with my grandmother's handwriting on it fell out of an old recipe book that my mum and I were looking through and reduced us both to tears.

Here it is, if you know what to do with it let me know.

6 oz flour
4 oz breadcrumbs
3 eggs
Black treacle
Cup of milk
Dried fruit
Chopped nuts

...that's it. I think it's some sort of steamed pudding, possibly a Christmas pudding, but there's no alcohol in it and no sugar either so I imagine it's quite an austere one. I'll have a go at it one of these days and let you know.
