stirred up and steamed

I did manage to stir up the fruit and spices with the brandy last weekend. It's been stirred up a few times this week. The smell is lovely. Cardamom - up there with nutmeg in the strictly come spicing stakes as far as I'm concerned. I love it.

Here is the recipe - fat free Christmas Pudding, courtesy of Frances Bissell.

Mix, steep, add remaining ingredients, pile into an oiled 3 pint pudding basin, cover in oiled greaseproof paper, steam for three hours.

Tie up in clean paper. Look forward to Christmas Day.

Gosh I wish I had read this before I sunk a packet of suet into our Christmas pudding! The spice blends in this sound excellent. I will note this one down for next year!
