Christmas Pudding | 12 Days of Christmas Recipes

Our second last day of our 12 Days of Christmas Recipes is upon us and we're indulging in a dessert that should be on the menu in every house-hold at Christmas. Christmas pudding is a popular choice on the big day and is the perfect way to top off a well prepared meal. Here's our recipe so why not give it a go!


  • 5 oz self raising flour
  • 1 tblsp mixed spice
  • 2 tblsp treacle
  • 8 oz brown sugar
  • 8 oz suet
  • 5 oz bread crumbs (a day old)
  • 4 oz raisins
  • 6 oz sultanas
  • 6 oz currants
  • 4 oz mixed peel
  • 4 oz glace cherries (chopped)
  • 1 medium carrot (grated)
  • 2 eating apples (grated)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 orange
  • 4 floz Guinness
  • 6 floz brandy


  1. Add all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and mix well. Zest and juice the lemon and orange and add to your mixture. Then add the Guinness, brandy and treacle.

  2. Add the eggs and cover mixture with cling film and store in the fridge for 1 day.

  3. Grease a pudding dish and cut out a round piece of baking parchment paper for the tops and bottoms of the pudding. Give the pudding mixture a good stir, then add your mixture into the pudding bowl.

  4. Put a piece of parchment on top of the pudding and wrap the top of the pudding with tinfoil. Place in a roasting tin and add enough boiling water to come half way up.

  5. Cook at 100°C for 8-9 hours, checking occasionally on the water level. Alternatively, you can steam the pudding on the hob for 8-9 hours.

  6. To serve, steam pudding again for at least one hour. Just before serving, Why not pour a dollop of Whiskey or brandy over the upturned pudding, step back and set alight! Serve with freshly whipped cream.

We hope you enjoy trying out this recipe. Wishing you a wonderful festive season from us all at B&B Ireland.

Danabel Porridge Bread Recipe

I started making my Porridge Bread about a year ago. It was so popular with guests that I carried on making it. Now, I make it everyday and leave it on the breakfast table for my guests to help themselves. I am always complimented on how tasty it is. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to prepare, yet so delicious!
