If your having trouble choosing to make a Christmas cake or a pudding, then this one is the best of both worlds. If you serve it cold it's like cake. If you serve it warm it's like pudding. Because they are individual, you each person can pick how they want it! You can store it for up to a month before eating and it doesn't need aging or resting like some other recipes do so you can make it a day ahead. I love this and so does my family.
