DIRECTIONS

  • Grease a 1.2litre pudding basin with butter.
  • Place the cherries in the bottom.
  • Beat the sugar and butter with a hand held beater until pale and creamy.
  • Beat in the eggs seperately, whisking well in between.
  • Fold in the sifted flour, spice and salt carefully.
  • Then add the lemon juice, lemon and orange zest, apple and fruit mince.
  • Spoon into the basin.
  • Tie a double piece of pleated baking paper on to the basin.
  • Place in boiling water and cook for 2 1/2 hours.
  • When the pudding is completely cold, turn it out, wrap it well and freeze until needed.
  • Take out of freezer Christmas Eve.
  • Can either re-steam it for an hour or just slice it and heat in the microwave.
  • I used mixed red, green and yellow cherries.
