Grandma made this pudding for the holidays. I never cared for it, but my dad loved it! This takes two days, and will tie up your oven for 7-8 hours! NOTE: This uses beef suet as an ingredient. Don't know of any substitute for it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the raisins, almonds, citron, apples, and brandy in a bowl, and allow to sit overnight.
  2. The next day, preheat oven to 300°F.
  3. Butter a 2-qt. pudding mold (or souffle dish).
  4. Combine the fruit mixture with the remaining ingredients, one at a time. Mix well, and turn into pudding mold and cover tightly with parchment paper secured with cotton string.
  5. Place a large roasting pan in oven on center rack. Place mold in pan and fill roasting pan with boiling water, halfway up sides of mold. Steam 7 to 8 hours, adding more water if necessary.
  6. To serve, loosen the side of the pudding with a knife and invert onto a serving platter.
  7. Serve warm, with your favorite hard sauce. (There are several variations posted here on Zaar).
