Fruit mince

You could use a similar quantity of fruit mince instead of all the dried fruit in this recipe.

This was so easy it almost felt like cheating. I used only fruit mince, blueberries and ice cream and made a simple blueberry sauce to serve over it. Of course the "pudding" started melting on the plate as soon as i put it there but it was still very frozen inside - so I cut and served it in slices. Great idea - 12 Dec 2010
