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.
Hearty traditional puds are back in fashion and are ideal on chilly days. This steamed sponge dotted with currants and served with a warm lemony syrup is a real treat.
A lighter and very moist version of Christmas pudding made with grated carrots and apples instead of lots of dried fruit.
This is an old family recipe that originates from Yorkshire.
The slow cooker works great as a water bath and these steamed chocolate and orange puddings are a hit in our household. I usually do 6 individual puddings in ramekins, but you could do a 1 litre single pudding and increase the time in the cooker. Serve warm with some vanilla ice cream.
