Traditional Steamed Christmas Pudding is the Queen of Christmas Puddings!

With this dark, sticky and sweet pudding…you’ll savour every bite.

This Traditional Style Christmas Pudding will take you quite a while to make – but the results will be incredible. This recipe has been in my family for four generations and we have it every single year, no matter how how it is outside!

We always have it with piping hot homemade custard, and the kids have it with vanilla ice cream.

Make this recipe a month or two in advance so that the flavours in the pudding have time to ripen!
