Do you know how some things just taste of Christmas? This traditional Christmas Pudding recipe is a festive party in your mouth. Loads of mixed fruits, spices and that great Christmas lubricant, alcohol. Unlike this recipe, pudding traditions like hiding trinkets in the middle seem to have faded away. Good riddance I say, because frankly the thought of my mouthful of pudding being spoiled by biting into a thimble – signifying another year of “spinsterhood” – depressing. I’m just here to get my cake on, pudding mystics, let me be. This boiled Christmas Pudding is best served with a topping of cool brandy custard or vanilla bean ice-cream.
You will need: a 2.8 Litre (6 pints, or 4 cups) Pudding Steamer
