• 450g dark brown sugar
• 1 teaspoon allspice
• 325g currants
• 650g raisins
• 175g mixed peel
• 50g ground almonds
• Grated rind of 2 lemons
• ¼ grated nutmeg
• 8 “Cotswold Legbar” eggs
• 2 tablespoons black treacle
• Juice of 2 oranges
• 1 grated carrot
• 1 grated cooking apple
• 3 cans of Guinness, brandy or Freeminer Speculation Ale
1. Mix all ingredients together in large bowl and allow to soak overnight.
Note: when adding the Guinness only add enough to create a mixture that is of dropping consistency, but remember that the dried fruit will soak up some of the liquid overnight so it doesn’t matter too much if the mixture is a little wet.
2. Divide the mixture between 5 buttered pudding basins filling to an inch from the top. Place buttered greaseproof paper cut to fit the top, wrap in either muslin or tin foil and tie ready for steaming.
3. Steam for 10 hours. Re-heat on Christmas day by steaming for a further 5 hours. The key to a dark, moist and rich pudding is in the steaming – the longer you can do it the better it becomes.
