Mum's Advent Calendar 17, Days Left 8

May Father Christmas bring everything you wish for (in reason.) He's here a bit early. Must have got his dates wrong.

Find me
I know, I know, it looks a dreadful mess. It's actually a Christmas pudding recipe which can be 'cooked' in the microwave for 10 minutes. (Seemed better than steaming for 4 hours.) It smells very treacly. I'm not really a Christmas pudding fan but DH likes a serving with custard. I'm all for 'bung it all in' recipes and this had ingredients which were to hand - so I had a go. DH and I each had a wish. (Not telling.)

Oh wow, it does smell like a Christmas pud now! Hope it tastes like one - I've had a quick nibble and it tastes Christmassy to me. (Should be with my sherry from yesterday inside it!)

If it's not edible it will join the ranks of my pud from last year. Do you like my Christmas mug?

May all your Christmas wishes come true.

I am linking my Advent Garland to KC's Court this year for a really Advent Bloggy Christmas.

  4. My MIL made Christmas Puds. She must have made them on boxing day as they were mouldy by the time we received them. Santa found.

  5. We're a strange lot here, we don't like Christmas pudding, or Christmas cake or mince pies. Found Snowy Santa.

  6. Now thats my idea of pudding - is there a recipe?
    Seen santa
