Hi all, firstly I must mention that my camera is a big miss since I dropped and broke it and hoping to get a new one of SANTA LOL!!! In the mean time we will make do and get those festive recipes going.
This Christmas pudding is so easy and quick to make in the microwave and it is  as good as conventional pudding. This pudding was cooked  and tested on full power at 650 Watt Microwave.

  • 2 dessert apples, grated
  • 150 g bread crumbs
  • 100 g raisins
  • 100 g sultanas
  • 100 g prunes, chopped
  • 100 g vegetable suet
  • 50 g almonds, chopped
  • 50 g candied peel
  • 50 g soft brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp black treacle or pekmez
  • 3 eggs
  • 125 ml Guinness
  • 1tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1/2 tsp gravy browning
Place all pudding ingredients into a bowl and mix. Spoon the mixture into a lightly greased, base-lined 1.25 litre basin. Level the top with a spoon. Cover with cling film and pierce. Cook for 8 minutes on full power in a 650 watt microwave. ( Or adjust your time for lower or higher watt. ) After 8 minutes, leave to cool and remove the cling film. Cover with fresh cling film and foil before storing.
Serve with Brandy Sauce.
