Granny's Heirloom English Christmas Pudding Recipe
A Personal Gift Of A Christmas Pudding - the best gift ever!This pudding is a light, delicious, traditional English pudding,
best served with hot custard, whipped double cream or brandy butter. The essence of most traditional puddings
is the character of the liquor and the use of a special ceramic "pudding basin"
from Mason Cash.
steamed on” Stir up Sunday” (second Sunday in November). Smaller versions can
be made - I use a 180ml greased Mason Cash white pudding basin with a small
circle of greaseproof paper on the bottom. Cover as per 1pt bowl (16 oz.).
Cooking time is 3 hours and then 1 - 1 1/2 hours on the day of eating.
Larger versions - 2 pint sized Mason Cash pudding bowl (1
qt.), prepare as before, steam for 8 hours and then 2 1/2 on the day of eating.
A GREAT GIFT IDEA! The small sized puddings are best for Gift
Giving – you can always give the Mason Cash ceramic pudding bowl with the pudding ready for
baking for an extra special friend or family member. Link to pudding bowl...
