Quick and Easy Christmas Pudding.

For the first time ever I made my very first Christmas Pudding.  I followed the recipe which was on the Avanti Steamer I found last week.

I sussed out a few pudding recipes but came back to this one simply because it was so straightforward and easy!!

I didn't add cinnamon and all spice (I may have forgotten to buy some!!  Also I added 2 cups of mixed fruit as I also may have forgotten the raisins!!)  I also added the brandy at step one so it soaked in to the fruit with the butter and water.  Other than that I made it to the direction

The verdict- Freaking delicious, bloody easy and a new "family" favourite!!

The steamer won't just be used once a year either as I am trying to get my hands on a bacon pudding recipe my Nan used to make plus I have seen other steamed pudding recipes around the traps which I want to try.

In anticipation of #BandAid30 being released any second now here the original.  I remember getting this record for Christmas 30 years ago.  I am dying to know who is in the new one!!

Linking up for #openslather with One Mother Hen and Musings of the Misguided for #sunshinesunday.


  1. I would love to make a Christmas pudding but I'm the only one who would eat it and I really can't afford to eat a whole one so think I'll pop one of the little single serve puddings they sell at Coles with some custard into my next shopping trolley and keep it for Christmas !
    Have the best week !
    Me xox

  2. That's my type of pudding. Nice and easy. :)

  3. Don't hate me because I can't stand fruit in cake - I do LOVE the fact that they are making a new Band Aid song - can't wait to hear it either!

  4. Congratulations on the Christmas pudding success. It's something I've never tried. But maybe this year - seeing as I have a recipe now.

  5. I was listening to the old Band Aid just the other day. There is nothing that will replace this one for me. I love it :)
    I pinned the recipe, I am SALIVATING just imagining how good it tastes! Sounds pretty easy too. I don't have a steamer, but I am sure I can find a way around that :)

  6. That looks scrumptious! I stick to the ice-cream pudding for Christmas as mum is the expert with the pudd.

  7. That does sound amazing!!!! Mixed fruit would have been great anyway!!! Nice substituting! Thanks for joining our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party! Have a great weekend xx

  8. Your recipe sounds like my kind of recipe - lots of adding in whatever you've got on hand because you forgot the actual ingredients. Sounds perfect! I love a good christmas pudding with warm custard :)

  9. Thank you for sharing the recipe!! I bought the Avanti Steamer a couple of years ago - and do you think I could find the recipe?! You're a life saver :)
