Unlike my roast beef, my Christmas pudding (from Margaret Costa's recipe) was awful. Tough on the outside, light brown and chewy within 🙁 I'm hoping to salvage it with this recipe. Any other ideas? This one has the advantage of cooking it some more, which it definitely needs, despite the 3 hours total it spent in the pressure cooker. I'm not a fan of fried Christmas pudding at the best of times.

I had one I made last year and it was yummy. Maybe add some more alcohol to moisten and serve with a sweet white sauce

Chop it into small bits and mix through vanilla ice-cream (preferably home made) before serving topped with Ameretto

 

Works for me   whistle

Can you microwave it briefly to cook it? (Christmas puddings need very little time to microwave, start at a minute unless there is a lot left, then two minutes unless you want to burn it to a crisp and not have to worry about it big_laugh) And then how about a tiffin cake or chocolate refridgerator cake?

No ideas for reconstituting a poor pud, I'm afraid.

I just wanted to give an honourable mention for the Asda pud by Prue Leith that we bought in for just £3 this year, for a change and a break for Fiona.

It was dark in colour but light in flavour. Really excellent - surprisingly I have to admit.

Served with Cornish custard and F's own brandy butter, I had two helpings and F had the leftovers on Boxing Day.

One to note for next year.

Never knowingly underfed

Well, a friend gave us a dozen eggs that were too small to sell commercially, so I ended up using the Australian solution I linked to. It was surprisingly good, certainly a lot better than the original 🙂 (I did add a glug of tawny port to be on the safe side).
