Make this delicious traditional Christmas pud ahead of time and reheat on Christmas day for a beautiful dessert after you have finished your festive turkey. This would also make a very special gift for friends and family.

Method

  1. Place all the fruits in a large mixing bowl with the beer and rum, cover and leave to soak overnight.

  2. Next day, stir in the rest of the ingredients, stirring well to combine.

  3. Divide between 2 1.2 litre (2 pint) greased pudding basins (leaving room for the puddings to rise) and smooth the tops.

  4. Cover with a lid or a double thickness of pleated greaseproof paper, then with a double thickness of pleated foil.

  5. Tie securely and place in 1 or 2 large pans and pour in boiling water to come halfway up the basins.

  6. Cover and cook for 6 hours, topping up with boiling water as needed.

  7. Cool completely, then wrap in fresh greaseproof paper and foil.

  8. Store in a cool, dark place until needed. The puddings will keep for 3 months.

  9. To reheat simply steam the puddings for 2 hours.
