Packed with exotic fruits steeped in fresh orange and brandy, this Christmas pudding contains no heavy suet so is wonderfully light in texture. If you prefer to use different fruits to those in the recipe, just make sure that the total weight is about 500g. Garnish with fresh fruit - we've used cherries and pomegranate seeds.
Serves: 8 - 10
The buttered foil in the bottom of the basin ensures that the pudding does not stick - simply remove before serving. If boiling the pudding rather than steaming, it is important to place the basin on a metal rack. This prevents the pudding from becoming overcooked at the bottom. Do not sit it on a plate or saucer as these can crack. The pudding can be prepared up to 2 months ahead. If freezing, thaw completely before reheating.
