    Boo L's Note:

    Rather than the traditional dark Christmas pudding, made months in advance and fed with alcohol, this can be made a couple of days before Christmas, and is far less boozy!

      Mix together the suet, flour, sugar, mixed spice and breadcrumbs.
    4. 4
      Add this to the fruit mix, and beat in 2 eggs.
    5. 5
      Transfer this to the basin, leaving an inch at the top.

      Cover the top of the basin with baking parchment and use the plastic lid or a double layer of foil.
