1. Pre heat the oven to 100oC. Place all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and thoroughly mix. Cover with cling film and leave to mature for 1 week in the fridge (the longer the better).
2. Divide the mixture equally into 8 small pudding bowls (ones that will hold at least 8oz of the mix).
3. Cover with a small square of grease proof paper and then cover with tin foil. Tie a piece of string around the top to hold it in place.
4. Place the pudding basins into a deep roasting tray and pour boiling water until half way up the basins. Place into the oven and cook for 5hrs or until a skewer is drawn out clean from the pudding.
5. When cooked remove from the oven, leave to cool for 15mins then pierce through the puddings a few times with a skewer and drizzle in some brandy.
Cover tightly with another small square of grease proof paper and the cover with tin foil. Tie a piece of string around the top to hold in place. Store in a cool dry place, the longer you can leave these or prepare in advance, the more mature they will become.
6. Serve with warm brandy sauce and extra thick brandy cream.
