    Traditional Christmas pudding recipe

    Step 1
    Place dried fruit, brandy, wine, conserve and spices into a bowl. Mix well. Cover. Stand overnight, stirring occasionally.

    Step 2
    Grease a 10-cup capacity pudding basin with melted butter. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Brush with butter again. Line base of bowl with baking paper.

    Step 3
    Whisk eggs and butter together. Add to fruit mixture with sugar. Sift flours and bicarbonate of soda over fruit mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Spoon into prepared basin.

    Step 4
    Cut 1 large sheet of foil and 1 large sheet of baking paper. Lay paper over foil. Make a pleat in the centre. Place, paper-side down, over pudding. Secure with string.

    Step 5
    Place an upturned saucer into the base of a large, deep saucepan. Place basin onto saucer. Pour hot water into saucepan so it comes one-third of the way up the side of the basin. Cover with a tight-fitting lid. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 5 hours. Remove pudding from water. Stand for 30 minutes. Turn onto a platter. Serve with cream.
