Easy Christmas Pudding


Step 1 of Preparation for Christmas Pudding

Dear friends, 😀

Today, I am making a Christmas pudding and I am very excited as this is the first time that I will be making it – all credits and appreciation for this recipe go to sweetrosie, whose wonderful blog and Christmas Pudding recipe can be found HERE .

She is giving a step-by-step recipe for this easy Christmas Pudding and last night, I went digging in my refrigerator (where I keep all my baking supplies) and managed to scramble together 500 gms of candied mixed fruit, 200 gms of yellow raisins, and 200 gms of chopped red cherries.

I only have walnuts and almonds and after toasting them for a couple of minutes, I mixed the nuts and dried fruit together with 1/2 cup of Hennessy VSOP Cognac and 1 cup of strong Earl Grey tea. I had used only 1/3 of the recommended alcohol because my kids were complaining about its smell! 🙄 😆

Now I am eagerly waiting for the next step of this recipe from sweetrosie, and the fruit and nuts can be left to soak in the alcohol and tea for up to a week. 😉

Have a wonderful Sunday! 😀

    Thank you, sweetrosie, for your compliments…… can’t wait to see your photos tomorrow. Meanwhile, I am happily stirring my mixed fruits and nuts occasionally to make sure that they are evenly coated with the liquor/tea. 😆

    You have a peaceful, happy evening, too! 😀
