This Christmas pudding is the most important dessert at Christmas time and you can get organised early with this amazingly simply version prepared in your Thermomix and steamed in the Varoma.
Christmas pudding is the queen of desserts at Christmas time. I love how the lights are turned off and the room is filled with this amazing smell of brandy burning. Just amazing!! I must admit I was never into Christmas pudding until I came to the UK, I had no idea something like that existed but now I am super into it and it is so easy with the Thermomix.
You can soak the fruit for longer than 2 hours, up to 2 days if you really like but it is just as good with little soaking time. If you are up for a bit of a change, soak the fruit in sherry and instead of brandy to light it up, use some dark rum. Yummy. Happy Christmas!
On Christmas Day, place the pudding in the Varoma again, add 1500g water and steam 60 Min. / Varoma / Speed 2. Repeat the steaming step once, then remove and place on the serving plate. Warm the brandy in a small saucepan or the mixing bowl until warm, then pour over the Christmas pudding and set light to it. Enjoy!
