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
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 ) 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).
pleased to hear it wasn't wasted after all
