I found this recipe on the internet a while back, for a plum pudding, by one of my favourite cook book writer Julia Child.
So finally, it's time to give it a try.
There are some small changes.
I soaked the fruits in cherry liqueur and sherry for about a week, before using this recipe, and added some grated apple.
I didn't actually put the mix direct into the mixing but wrap it in cloth, it's easier for me to get it out and hang it in the pantry to dry later - for about a week or so, I was such a bad organiser with Christmas Lunch and didn't get time to do my pudding until really really late!
It's a nice pudding, moist and flavoursome, and so easy to make.
I didn't make the sauce, MIL always makes the best brandy sauce and she brought us some for the lunch!
