There were lots of requests for the recipe for my Nan’s Christmas Pudding.
Here it is – measurements are in imperial as per her handwritten book. Somehow it would lose its charm if converted to metric.
Nan Purton’s Christmas Pudding
1lb dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 teaspoons mixed spice
8 tablespoons brandy or rum
2 teaspoons carb soda
1½ lbs plain flour and breadcrumbs (I did half this weight of each)
Make into 4 puddings and boil 4 hours.
