Christmas Pudding Recipe

This quick and easy Christmas pudding recipe is by far the best one we have available on our list of Christmas puddings. There are many Christmas pudding variations available, and most of them include either brandy or cherry. Not this one.


My wife calls this Christmas pudding recipe, a Christmas pudding for Millenials. I remember when we were younger and as kids we always found ourselves in different homes during Christmas. The Christmas pudding was introduced as the prime item on the Christmas menu buffet. I never liked it, because it always smelled like brandy. it is not something you can expect your kids to enjoy.


Then, later in life, I met this family who invited me to their holiday home over the festive season. As is tradition, the Christmas pudding got introduced at the end of the full course Christmas meal. I thought to myself, oh no, here we go again. I was pleasantly surprised to find a Christmas pudding so delicious, without brandy or sherry.


When my wife later started her recipe blog I tracked down the lady who prepared the Christmas pudding during those years and asked her if she would mind sharing her Christmas pudding recipe. She was too eager too. This Christmas pudding recipe is in memory of that very special lady, who played a big role in my life. I am sad to only realize that now.This Christmas pudding is moist and ideal for hiding a coin in the Christmas pudding. Finding a Christmas coin in your slice of the Christmas pudding is believed to bring good luck and especially wealth in the coming year.


I dedicate this Christmas pudding recipe to you, tannie Lettie (Auntie Lettie). Whom I always loved dearly. May this Christmas pudding shine in the hearts of the people who knew you so well.
