Here's our own version of Heston's hidden orange pudding. This Christmas pudding has a hidden orange in the centre of the pudding which uses traditional French-inspired techniques for confit l'orange, also known as candied orange. The orange is then surrounded by a moist and flavourful pudding containing glacé cherries, dried cranberries and a lovely variety of seasonal spices. Serve with clotted cream, brandy butter or custard.
If you are a traditionalist and add in a silver threepence or a sixpence to your puddings always warn your guests in advance to avoid Christmas Day dental emergencies!
