Food Fare: Christmas RecipesPwdin Nadolig

Christmas Pudding

Wash and dry fruit. Fold butter and sugar together in a large bowl until soft, adding eggs one by one. Stir in the syrup, grated rind and lemon juice, sifted flour, spices, breadcrumbs, suet, fruit and peel. Mix well, adding enough liquid and milk to blend. Cover and allow to stand overnight.


The next day, grease 2-pint size "pudding cups" (or other baking cups). Place a circle of greased pastry paper on the bottom of each cup. Divide the pudding mixture equally and place in the cups, covering the top with more paper and damp tea towels. Tie the towels securely with a knot to keep steam in during cooking process. Steam cups for six hours in a steamer, or in a large pot on the stove. Remove from heat and cover with damp tea towels.


Note: Pwdin Nadolig can be kept for up to one year (and are said to be better with age). As required, re-steam to heat. The puddings are traditionally brought to table with flaming brandy, and served with thick cream.
