100g dried apricots
75g dark glace cherries
1 500 ml can of Guinness
100g ginger in syrup- chopped plus 2 tbsp of the syrup
Place all these ingredients in a sealable container, mix well and cover.
When ready to make, which we recommend anytime after the beginning of December, add the following ingredients:
2 quinces, grated
2 oranges, juiced and zested
6 beaten eggs
250g shredded suet
350g muscovado sugar or dark brown soft
250g fresh breadcrumbs(recommend using sliced wholemeal bread for this as it comes down to a nice fine crumb in a food processor)
175g Self raising flour
1 1/2 tsp mixed spice.
4 tbsp black treacle
Mix very well!! I recommend putting some disposable gloves on and really working it all through your fingers!! Get really messy!!
Butter the 2 pudding basins and divide the mix between them.
Cut 2 circles of baking parchment as big as the top of the basin and rest lightly on top of the mix allowing it to move when the pudding expands
Put lids on the basins and steam for 3 ½ hours!
Let the puddings cool and then remove the baking parchment. Wrap well in cling film and seal in an airtight container until Christmas !!
To reheat steam gently for approx. 3 hrs turn out and then flame with brandy!!! Yummy
