This slow cooker Christmas pudding recipe is the safest, easiest and most effective way to steam a pudding; a standard slow cooker will comfortably fit a 2L pudding bowl. A great addition to your Christmas menu, serve hot with lashings of brandy sauce.
I have made this pudding several years in a row now and it seems that sometimes I have extra mixture left over that won't fit in the 2L basin and I believe this is caused by the dried fruit's ability to swell overnight. If I have extra I just make a small additional pudding.
This may seem to be a silly question, but if I were to make this in advance, how long do I cook /reheat the pud for? - 21 Oct 2014
This looks great - some of my family don't like Christmas pudding (!) so I usually make two smaller puddings - what timing should I use for a 1 litre pudding basin? - 20 Oct 2015
@TeeHee If made in advance, I would have this pud slowly reheating in the slow cooker on xmas day for about 6 hours on high. - 22 Oct 2014
