the flavor of this pudding is fantastic, I had not candied peel and used a few pecans I had here. I used the brandy too!! As I don't have in my country mixed spices I used 1/4 spoon each of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Really the best pudding
Well, I used wheat bread, since I don't buy white very often, but it was a type without a strong flavor. I also couldn't get hold of the demerara sugar and am not wild about candied peel, so I left those out. Still, I don't think these changes could have altered the taste of the recipe that much. It was delicious, rich and just sweet enough.
