Christmas pudding tips

Using a microwave is a quick and easy way of making a last-minute Christmas pudding

Refrigerate before cooking overnight to let the falvours develop

Add an extra kick by replacing some of the fruit with homemade mincemeat

Swap some of the fruit for prunes and experiment with different spirits. Calvados works well!

Pour 100ml of warm brandy or rum over the pudding at the last minute

Break up leftovers and mix into soft vanilla ice cream on Boxing Day
