READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by William Uncle Bill

A delicous and healthy fruit pudding that is easy to make. My grandmother passed this recipe to me over 60 years ago, however, I made some adjustments to the recipe. Grandmother made this pudding from the dried fruit that she prepared when the fruit was in season.


I would like to know how long can you keep this pudding, I know that there are many fruit cakes that last for months.
