Christmas Pudding Recipe
This Christmas pudding recipe is a healthy twist on an old classic. When baked it comes out more of a loaf however, when steamed it's much softer and more pudding like. Both are delicious.
500g dried mixed fruit (soaked for 30 minutes)
3tsp ground cinnamon
2tsp mixed spice
Dash of cloves
Zest of 1 orange
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2. Grate the carrots and apple.
3. Drain the fruit and add them to a bowl with the carrot, apple, eggs, cinnamon, mixed spice, cloves and orange zest. Mix until well combined.
4. Pour the mix into a lined loaf tin and bake in the oven for 45 minutes OR steam for around 1 hour 15 minutes but keep an eye on it. Allow to cool. The loaf should be soft in the middle.
