    An excellent base recipe for an authentic tasting plum pudding. I used brown sugar instead of white and moistened the mix with molassas and Guinness stout.  -  01 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Delicious! Walnut in place of pecans also taste great, as do candied cherries instead of candied citron. I thought I'd just try this out this Christmas; this may become a must-have for every Christmas!  -  25 Dec 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
