    Yeah forgot to mention the apple, mace and nutmeg. I used some mace I harvested myself from a jungle in Tamil Nadu. \o/

    Have you tried it yet Leela? :)

    Made my mixture yesterday, steamed them today, I did two bigguns and three little ones, I've tried one of the little ones and it was BLOODY GORGEOUS so I have high hopes for the rest. :)

    I went for 200g suet, 200g breadcrumbs, 250g plain flour; about 750g assorted dried fruit (apricots, figs, sultanas, raisins, cranberries) and chopped almonds; zest and juice of one lemon and one orange; 150g brown sugar; three egg yolks; a glass of brandy; a small glass of milk; salt, cinnamon, ginger, allspice. A pound coin in one and a loonie in the other (that's a Canadian dollar to you). I think that was it. Left it to soak overnight then into the pudding basins and six hours steaming. Delighted with how they turned out if I say so myself. :)

    Well I'm normally one for home cooking, but I have to be honest, when it comes to Christmas Pud my favourite recipe is:

    1. Go to M&S
    2. Pick up one luxury M&S Christmas pud
    3. Pick up one tub of brandy butter
    4. Queue up at the till
    5. Pay
    6. Go home and follow the instructions on the packet

    \o/

    Leela, you won't go far wrong with Nigel Slater. There's a man who knows where his pudding's at.

    I've been inspired now. I'm gonna spend Saturday making Christmas Pud and biscuits with my nipper. Yay!

    Oh, and here's my DIY advent calendar guide again - for the win!
