This is a delicious alternative to traditional Christmas pudding but still is a serious and fruity dessert for the big day.
Altered ingredient amounts. This was fabulous, compliments all around, however I added another tablespoon of rum and soaked the fruit in the rum for a number of hours. This will be made again. - 03 Dec 2008
Loved this, although I didn't have dark rum, used cointreau instead and it lacked the intesity of the rum. Would soak the fruit in the rum next time. gots lots of good comments. - 06 Dec 2011
I make this every year. It is far nicer than hot plum pudding. Living in Australia it suits our hot climate better. Tastes great. There is never any left over. - 04 Dec 2008
