An easy-to-follow recipe for a rich and delicious Christmas Pudding, perfect for all the family to share this festive season! We've made this one with our Hand Mixer! Scroll down to watch the video on how it's made.
1. In a large bowl add the butter, sugar, eggs, flour and spices and mix well.
2. Add the treacle and mix.
3. Add in the breadcrumbs, all the fruit and the brandy, before grating in the apple. Mix well until all combined.
4. Line the bottom of the pudding basin with a buttered parchment circle and butter around the inside of the bowl.
5. Spoon the mixture into a 1.5kg (3lb) pudding basin, or 3x 500g (3x 1lb) basins and press the mixture down, leaving a 1-2 centimetre gap from the top.
6. Cover the top of the pudding mix with a parchment circle.
7. Take a square piece of parchment, and make a one inch pleat across the middle. Repeat this with a piece of foil (both must cover the diameter of the basin once pleated).
8. Place the parchment first, then the foil on top of the basin and using string to tie both the parchment and foil around securely around the top of the basin (dont worry if you have to tie a little lower).
9. Place a trivet to stand the basin on and pour in hot water to reach halfway up to the basin bowl.
10. Cover with lid and simmer for 3-4 hours depending on the size of your pudding, remembering to top up the water. DO NOT allow to boil dry.
11. To check if the pudding is ready, remove the pan from heat and carefully remove the pudding. Lift off a section of foil and insert a skewer. If it comes out clean the pudding is cooked.
12. Once cooked and cooled, leave the pudding in its bowl and store in an airtight container in a cool room away from the light. You can continue to add brandy if desired.
13. To serve on Christmas Day, place the pudding in a saucepan with water as in step 9 and gently simmer for 1-2 hours. Again this depends on the size of the pudding you have made.
14. Serve the pudding warm with brandy butter or brandy sauce. To flame, warm brandy or rum in a small pan, pour it over the pudding and set light to it.
