The Max Christmas Pudding: Christmas Made Easier

The Max Christmas Pudding: Christmas Made Easier.

Hello friends. Today I have a guest post to share with you:

A Whirlpool’s microwave recipe.

Here is a recipe for a delicious Christmas pudding packed with fruits and spices.

This version is slightly lighter than a traditional pudding – perfect if you haven’t much room left after the turkey.

This recipe would normally steam for some hours, but in the Max microwave will cook for just 30 minutes.

Think of all the energy saved!!
