Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat

Please put a penny in the old man's hat...

Hi all,

We're going to be spending Christmas in a log cabin in Devon this year. I'm hoping to have internet so I can chat to everyone but we may need to play it by ear a little.

Anyway, I'm trying to get everything organised before we go and I want to make those cute little Christmas Puddings that Nana and Mum make.. I've found a few recipes on the internet but I want the fail-safe/tried-and-tested variety.. and I thought you guys might like it to.

So, Mum (or Lisa?), could you please put the Mini Christmas Pudding recipe in the comments to this post?

I'm sure I've had the recipe in the past (I must have, I made them 2 years ago and Bruce's Dad liked them - which is why I want to make them again)... but I can't find it now.


-the Xmas Elves-


  1. Brilliant, yes! I want to make them too. I tried calling Mum last night to bug her for a recipe, but I'll just point her here instead.
    And Mum/Lisa, I'm a guy. I need specifics. So don't just say "add some juice", say "add 263mls of juice cooled to 6 degrees". Or just "about a cup" I suppose.

  2. Chatted to Dayna last night and Damien this morning. I haven't made these in ages. Crumble cake. Add liquid (alcoholic or not) Roll in balls and decorate with melted white choc. I have a cheap cake so might try them.I think 1/4 of a cake will be enough to start.No idea on amouonts of liquid. sorry.

  3. Hehe - that is such a cute photo! Love it xo

  4. i'm going to make these next week. :-) I'll report back!

    thanks Dee re: photo.. it's in the centre of Cardiff - so funny!
