''Though brandy butter is a more traditional accompaniment to dessert on Christmas Day, this version made with Cointreau and orange zest is the perfect partner for my Hidden Orange Christmas Pudding. Try using Cointreau rather than brandy to ignite your pudding – it will fill your room with wonderful orangey aromas, perfect for Christmas Day.'' Heston
