Suddenly & unexpectedly I am 'doing' Christmas this year.  Does anyone have a pud recipe to share, preferably a light one?

Suky, I think that ours is really good. It's light.

I hate a heavy, stodgy Christmas pud.

I love christmas pudding but never on Christmas day - it's the final death blow that lays me out for hours!

We will either be having pavlova or summer pudding with our soft fruit from the freezer.

I like the idea of summer pudding in the middle ofwinter.  Bright red colour also looks very festive

How did it turn out, Suky? But I guess you will not know for sure until Christ5mas Day lunch . .

Lovage - I am with you on this. I also dislike turkey, except for the boned, rolled and stuffed thigh/leg joints. Give me a light pud after a Christmas lunch of beef on the bone and I would be in heaven!

It might be Traditional Danny, but too much for me. A small Portion with Cream, on Boxing Day, makes more sense.

I thought I had some Christmas pudding from last year, alas not!!

Put all the fruit in a bowl last night, and mixed up the recipe today.

Now, I thought I was making one pudding ... ahem .... it turned out to be two large-ish puds, and I still had some mixture leftover, so I have made 6 individual puds. Steaming up the kitchen as I type!! laugh

(I think I put in rather a lot more fruit! whistle)

Got one large and two small puds already made and sitting in a cupboard maturing.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Made mine today but stumbled at the hurdle of 200g fresh soft breadcrumbs.

I missed them from my list when I shopped for the ingredients in Morrisons on Wed.

A 400g white sliced pan eventually reduced down to 160g of crumbs after semi-toasting in t'oven. By the time I went and got some it was too late to start steaming so the dry mix sits awaiting the addition of the liquid concoctions (if the Jameson survives overnight!).

Never made one before so it's an adventure akin to Alton Towers for me. smile

Add the mixtures together and don't forget to stir it and make a wish at the same time, Danny, and the mixture will be all the better for sitting overnight and the flavours blending - with the Jamesons, that is!!
