Christmas Pudding

This delicious traditional Christmas pudding is sufficient to fill a large 2lb pudding basin or 2 x 1lb. I bought small foil pudding containers with lids and there is sufficient for three ! I like to give them as presents.
Once cooked it will keep for a very long time – in fact if you make two you can have one this Christmas and one next Christmas !
I have added a bit of a twist this year and included glace Morello cherries and cardamom seeds which provide some extra flavour.

As we know it is a firm tradition that on Stir up Sunday we make the pudding. Each family member gives the pudding a stir, closes their eyes and makes a wish. I hope that for everyone who makes this pudding their wish comes true.
