How to Make Special Christmas plum pudding

  • Cream the butter and sugar together, then add the eggs and mix well. Gradually add all the other ingredients and mix well.
  • Grease a pudding mould or any suitable bowl with butter.
  • Pour the pudding mixture into it, then steam the pudding for about 1 hour on low heat till it is firm to touch.
  • Then steam again for 10 mins or microwave for 3 mins before serving.
  • For a more exotic taste, when still warm make a few small holes all over the pudding and pour about 6 tbsps of rum over it.
