Perfect (!) Christmas Pudding! ….at least that is what it is called!

It is a Nigel Slater Christmas Pudding I am making this year. It is gonna fill 2 –  1.5 litre pudding basins!

I soaked chopped dried fruit – sultanas, currants, figs, cherries overnight in a bottle of Brandy!

I grated 2 apples and zest and juice of 2 oranges.



I added ginger syrup, chopped Ginger, SR Flour and Suet




Mucovado Sugar,6 eggs mixed spice  and breadcrumbs



Stirred it all together. Then I filled my greased pudding Basins


Forgot to take a Pic of Brandy at beginning so here it is –


Note the concentration of the Cook and in some pictures she is working so fast it is a blur ! 😛
