    Carrot and apple have been slowly working their way into cake recipes to create a healthy alternative so I suppose it makes sense that there is now a Christmas pudding version that uses them too.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 4 carrots, peeled and grated
    • 2 apples, peeled, cored and grated
    • 1 cup (155g) raisins
    • 1 cup dry (125g) breadcrumbs
    • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 150g butter
    • 1/2 cup (100g) white sugar
    • 4 eggs

    1. Combine the carrots, apples, raisins and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and allspice in a separate small bowl.
    2. Cream together the butter, sugar and eggs in a separate large bowl; stir in the flour mixture. Add the carrot mixture and mix well. Transfer mixture to a lightly-greased, 2 litre pudding basin.
    3. Place a steamer rack in the bottom of a large, deep saucepan. Set the filled basin on top of the steamer rack. Pour enough water into the bottom of the saucepan to cover the bottom 2/3 of the basin. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low; cover. Simmer for 2 hours 45 minutes, adding water occasionally to maintain the water level.
    4. Remove from water and allow to cool 10 minutes before turning out of onto a plate.

    Altered ingredient amounts. More apples might have improved this pudding. - 14 Nov 2009

    A little disappointed. A bit bland, taste a bit like a plain bread pudding. It is remotely like Xmas pudding but not as nice. For those who cant eat dried fruit it would be an OK substitute. - 14 Nov 2009
