Queen of Puddings recipe


Now, while Christmas pudding is much loved – it can be a bit like Marmite; a lot of people just hate it. Personally, there is nothing I like better than a bit of Christmas pudding covered in double cream. So GOOD! But you know me – I’m not one to be judgemental. Everyone should enjoy Christmas day and the delicious treats it brings with it. For you non-Christmas pudding lovers – here is dessert #2 of our altenative Christmas Pudding inspiration.

The Queen of Puddings is beyond delicious. The lovely Mimi from our recipe team got pretty excited when I told her this was going up on the blog exclaiming “That’s my favourite dessert!”. Well Mimi – this one’s for you!
