Who doesn't like a bit of figgy pudding at Christmas? This can be made up to 3 months before Christmas so there's no excuse! I like to serve this with a rum and ginger sauce instead of brandy butter but the choice is yours.
We tried this last year (2013) & all the (extended) family loved it. This year, someone *bought* a Christmas Pudding, but when they were reminded of last year's, they begged us to make another of these & took the bought one back! What more of a recommendation do you need than that??? The only tweak to the recipe was to add 2 extra apples in place of the pear as some of us do not like pears. (Oh, & a bit of extra rum :o) ) - 22 Nov 2014
