Description

Join Mrs Crocombe as she makes a traditional plum pudding at Audley End House. This recipe comes from 'Modern Cookery' by Eliza Acton, who is understood to have been the first person to call it 'Christmas Pudding'.

INGREDIENTS
75g flour
75g breadcrumbs
150g suet
150g raisins
150g currants
100g chopped apple (roughly one large apple)
125g white sugar
50g candied peel
tsp mixed spice
A pinch of salt
100ml brandy plus 50ml for serving
3 small eggs

METHOD
Begin by adding all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and mixing them together by hand.

Pour in 3 small eggs and 100ml of brandy before stirring again.

Line your chosen mould with butter and fill it with the mixture using a wooden spoon, making sure that every bit of space is filled, especially the bottom of the mould.

Cover the top with a wet, floured cloth and insert a fold in the material to allow space for the mixture to rise.

To steam the pudding, place the filled mould in a saucepan of boiling water, ensuring that the water level is approximately half way up the mould.

Steam for around 4 hours. To serve, carefully turn out of the mould.

When serving, gently heat some brandy then pour this over the pudding before lighting for those festive flourishes.
