About this recipe: 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.
See our How to steam Christmas pudding guide to get step-by-step instructions for steaming your pudding to perfection.
Alot of ingredients but turned out very moist. I made smaller versions in 1/2 pint tubberware bowls to give away as gifts. - 10 Oct 2011

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. - 04 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
