    Rachel Allen's Christmas pudding muffins recipe | Waitrose

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20-25 minutes
    • Total time: 40-45 minutes

    Makes: 6


    For the muffins:
    1 egg
    75ml milk
    30g salted butter
    2 tbsp sherry, whisky or brandy
    125g leftover Christmas pudding
    125g plain flour
    1tbsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp mixed spice 
    75g caster sugar

    For the icing:
    125g sifted icing sugar
    50g salted butter, softened
    1-2 tbsp sweet sherry, whisky or brandy 



    1. Preheat the oven to 350F or gas mark 4. Line the muffin tins with paper cases.

    2. Whisk the egg in a bowl. Add the milk, melted butter, sherry and the Christmas pudding.

    3. Sift the flour, baking powder and mixed spice into another bowl. Add the caster sugar and mix well. Make a well in the centre.

    4. Add the wet ingredients and mix together until a soft batter forms. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

    5. While they are cooking, make the sherry butter icing. Mix together the icing sugar and the butter. Add enough sherry, about 1 tbsp, to just soften the mixture and make it spreadable.

    6. Once the muffins are cool, spread the icing over the top and serve.
