Leftover Christmas Pudding Ice Cream

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PetsRus

We have this pudding always as a dessert at Christmas...not because I like it so much but because my husband is English. There is always pudding left and this dessert I do like! It also works well with fruit cake and if you don't want to use alcohol... substitute with orange juice

I agree wholeheartedly with Marie Alice: none of us were fans of Christmas pudding, but this recipe went down wonderfully. Again, not having to check and stir it was a bonus. Many thanks. Fiona
