This is a delicious alternative to a traditional christmas pudding and is so quick and easy you won't belive how good it tastes. I got it off the internet last year and make it whenever I have a large number of guests around. I usually serve it with vanilla icecream or whipped cream (infused with some vanilla seeds) and people are always asking for the recipe! Try it out, you won't regret it!
