Traditional Christmas Pudding

This is a fairly basic Christmas plum pudding recipe but unlike other recipes it can actually have plums in it. Unfortunately the ingredient list is so long it isn't easy to make it in less than industrial quantities! This could prove fortunate, however, as they make great food gifts. You can substitute a mixture of fresh and dried apricots of peaches for the plums if you wish.

Alot of ingredients but turned out very moist. I made smaller versions in 1/2 pint tubberware bowls to give away as gifts.

at cooking school my pastry chef was from England and we learned to make a wish not only for the pudding but also for xmas fruit cakes! thank you for sharing this tit bits. I usually replace the suet with butter and like this recipe, uses what ever in the baking pantry, including dates, plum, apricot and cranberries. I like some nuts but very finely chopped.

"Plum Pudding" simply means that it contains raisins, not our modern American idea of plums. "Plum" is the old, obsolete term for "raisin." A traditional English plum pudding contains raisins, not plums. Common misconception!

I made this one last year, I found it very much to my taste, but my children and family found it too nutty. . .

The flavor of the pudding was good when I tasted the batter, but I steamed the pudding for 9.5 hrs, checked it, and it was very dark and the entire outside of the pudding seems burnt. I have never burnt anything while steaming before and didn't even know that was possible.
