Cartwright & Butler have used the most traditional Christmas Pudding shape, ‘The Ball’ for their Traditional Christmas Pudding. It is rich in vine fruit, walnuts and spices with brandy and port too.
I found the texture of the pudding very pleasing. Cooking was very simple, I choose simply to microwave cook. Pop the pudding into the microwave on full power for 6 mins (800 watts) The pudding can also be steamed for 2 hours. Please read the
steaming instructions on the label.
I would deliver the pudding to the Christmas dining table decorated with a sprig of holly and serve with the option of cream, custard, brandy sauce.
Christmas Pudding with candied orange in a tin
Wow what a super twist to Cartwright & Butlers Traditional Christmas Pudding.
It’s said that you tamper with a classic at your own risk. But Cartwright & Butler have done this. They took a traditional rich Christmas pudding and added candied lemon and orange peel, a generous slug or two of orange liqueur and then covered the outside in whole slices of candied orange.
I loved the candied lemon and orange peel in the pudding. It comes presented in a reusable, signature clip top tin. I will be buying some as Christmas presents too.
