I've never made Christmas pudding before and so was very excited about my first attempt. I was quite ambitious and so decided to make 3 including one to give to family. I watched many videos of pudding making and chose a recipe that was mainly Delia Smith's but a little inspired by Nigella's non-conformist pudding. I steamed one and microwaved two and was very impressed with the results esp of the latter. So much less effort! In true Chandler family style we added lots and lots of alcohol, mainly Guinness, brandy, Cointreau, and a dash of rum. It smells divine and I can't wait for Christmas. Recipe to follow shortly.
