Individual Christmas Puddings

Individual Christmas Puddings Method:

1.) Soak the cranberries, sultanas, raisins and candied peel in the rum for 48 hours, in a covered bowl, before making the Christmas puddings.

2.) Preheat the oven to 180oC (fan 160oC), Gas Mark 4.

3.) Use 25g of the butter to generously grease eight cups of a deep muffin tin, leaving the four corner cups ungreased.

4.) Beat the remaining butter until soft in a large mixing bowl and then stir in the sugar.

5.) Sift the flour and mixed spice together into the bowl and beat until evenly combined with the butter mixture.

6.) Add the black treacle and gradually beat in the eggs, one at a time.

7.) Fold the alcohol soaked fruit, the grated apple and almonds into the batter and gently mix until evenly distributed.

8.) Spoon the mixture evenly into the eight greased muffin tin cups, leaving the four ungreased corners empty.

9.) Fill the corner cups with boiling water and carefully place the muffin tray on the bottom shelf of the preheated oven & bake for 40 minutes.

10.) Carefully remove the muffin tin from the oven and use a blunt knife to ease the Christmas puddings out of the muffin tin.

Serve immediately.

To Decorate:

Mix the walnut pieces and runny honey and use to top the mini puddings, then serve warm with vanilla custard, cream or brandy butter.

    I love the fact that there's three on the plate – they look so scrummy I'd probably have to just scoff the lot and 'eat for three'!
