    Gumboot Gourmet's Note:

    This is a traditional English steamed pudding, which I serve with Egg Nog Sauce. DH could care less about Christmas anything, except this. If I don't make this, I may as well pack my bags ... :) This is his dear Mom's recipe, just as she wrote it, I don't dare change it!

      This quick and easy Christmas Pudding was amazingly good even though it didn't have raisins. I'm sure it will become our Christmas tradition.

      Truly exquisite, and I'm sure it will become a holiday classic in our family! We couldn't resist eating one of the puddings immediately... I used mixed dried fruit instead of fruitcake fruit, and it turned out fine. I also steamed my puddings in an oven roaster instead of on top of the stove (300 degrees F, 6 hours). The one problem I had was not being able to get the puddings out of my steel bowls (~ poor woman's pudding basins) easily -- next time I'll flour as well as grease! I think I'll add some orange peel, too.
