    About this recipe: My Mum sent me this recipe on my first Christmas when I moved out of home. To my surprise (and my husband's) it turned out perfectly. So easy, so affordable, so delicious...a must-have addition to your Christmas table.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 60g butter
    • 250ml milk
    • 60g sugar
    • 250g mixed fruit
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon bi-carb soda
    • 125g self-raising flour
    • optional: capful of rum or brandy

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:1hr30min  ›  Ready in:1hr50min 

    1. Put butter, liquid (including rum/brandy), sugar, fruit and spices in a saucepan. Bring this to the boil, then simmer for a few minutes.
    2. Add in bicarb (will froth) and mix together. Let this then cool slightly.
    3. Add flour. At this point mixture should be quite moist.
    4. Steam in pudding mould for 1 1/2 hours. Water should cover 1/2 the sides.
    5. When cool, turn the pudding out and cover well with greaseproof paper.
    6. To reheat this (if cooked the previous day) put the pudding basin in water for 1 hour.
    7. Serve with your choice of custard, cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
