A fruity christmas pudding that is not too rich or heavy. I have been making this recipe year after year. Traditionally the pudding should be made on 'Stir up sunday' which is the suday before Advent ( sometime at the end of November). Everyone in the house should stir the pudding and make a wish.

Cook on a grill pan, BBq grill or frying pan. knead in your own favourite blend of crushed seeds, spices and herbs.

Sweet ones can be filled with nutella, jam , cream and peaches etc
