Traditional Christmas Pudding, presented in a beautiful Victorian red and gold swirl box with a red satin bow, is steamed to perfection and stuffed with with fruit, with a touch of Guinness and dark rum to give it a special, traditional flavor. Fruits include cherries, sultanas, currants, granny smith apples, pineapple and ginger. Perfect for your winter holiday dessert, or any time! Steam for 30 minutes to one hour before serving, and light with a tablespoon of brandy. Make a hard sauce to serve over the sliced pudding, too! Serves 6-8. 1 lb. 7 oz. Instructions on heating and serving are included in each box.
Suggestions on how to serve Microwave method: Open the box, keeping the plastic wrap on the pudding, and place on a dish that is microwave safe. Depending on the strength of your microwave, heat on medium for about 2 minutes - more if needed. Open carefully, so as not to burn your hands from the steam.
Stove top method: Open the box, take out the pudding. Pour a small amount of water in the bottom of a pan that can hold a metal steamer and the pudding, and place the wrapped pudding on the open steamer, with a piece of parchment paper or foil underneath the cake. Put on the lid and allow to steam gently for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Check the water level occasionally so as not to burn the pot.
When heated through, unwrap the pudding and place on a presentation plate that is flame-proof. Drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of brandy on to the pudding and light with a match. Let the alcohol burn off and serve sliced. Vanilla ice cream or hard sauce is a lovely accompaniment!
