Margaret Fulton's Rich Christmas Pudding

It's scarily close to Christmas now.  I hope that your preparations are going well for the big day.  Back in October, I commenced my Christmas preparations by making a Christmas cake and a Christmas pudding.  For this year's pudding, I chose Margaret Fulton's Rich Christmas Pudding from Margaret Fulton Christmas.  You can also find the recipe online here

Christmas pudding is my favourite part of the Christmas day meal.  We always have it with lashings of warm custard and vanilla icecream.  No matter how full I am from the main meal, there is always room for Christmas pudding.

I liked this pudding recipe because it didn't require heaps of expensive glace fruits - just sultanas, currants, raisins and mixed peel. It also turned out really well, even though I only had time to steam it for 5 hours instead of 6.

I will shortly be slicing up my pudding for Christmas gift boxes.  I am hoping that there is some left over for me to try!
