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.

Last but not least, serve immediately.

    They look fabulous, but we don't like Christmas pudding in our house (apart from husband!). Daughter said 'yuk' when I read out the ingredients to her! 😉

    This is so cool Claire! Normally we have a big Christmas pudding and cut slices off. It would be great to have an individual pudding.

    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'!

    These look great, making them for a Christmas fair. How long can they be stored for?

    • 27th October 2019 / 12:51 pm

      Hi Kate, this is a guest post so I am not sure how long they last for. They do last longer than regular puddings as they have rum in them, if this is any help?
