Christmas Pudding recipe from SYMPLY TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE book 2

 Ingredients:

  • 7 slices multigrain bread (crumble including crusts)
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 3 cups (500g) mixed fruit
  • 2 teaspoons mixed spices
  • ½ cup rum or brandy
  • 3 egg whites
  • ¾ teaspoon bicarb soda
  • ½ cup apple sauce (in jar)
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1 tablespoon Parisian essence (optional)
  • 1¼ cups plain flour

Put breadcrumbs in a large mixing bowl, heat milk until hot, then pour over breadcrumbs, stir together until really mushy and bread has absorbed all the milk.

Add in mixed fruit, spices and rum/brandy, mix together well. Beat egg whites into mixture well. Mix bicarb soda with apple sauce (it will froth) then add to bowl. Stir in mashed banana and parisian essence (this will make a darker pudding). Fold in flour and mix until all ingredients are well combined.

Pour into a 19cm x 9 cm pudding steamer that has been sprayed with cooking spray, spray lid as well. Secure lid. Put a saucer turned upside down into boiler, put pudding dish on top of saucer and fill with boiling water which reaches ¾ of the way up the steamer. Steam in a covered boiler simmering for 4 hours. Check water level occasionally, top up if needed.

To reheat place in boiler for 1 hour before serving.

  • I’m not a fan of pudding, personally. I stopped loving it when Mum stopped putting money in it. However, Mum still loves it and I buy one every year to serve on Christmas Day. I will share this recipe with her. She will love it.
