Ingredients

  • white breadcrumbs 200g (preferably made from slightly old bread)
  • mixed dried fruit 200g
  • soft light brown sugar 200g
  • suet (beef or vegetable) 200g
  • self-raising flour 100g
  • ground almonds 100g
  • mixed spice 1 tsp
  • ground nutmeg 2 tsp
  • carrot 1, grated
  • eggs 2, whisked
  • stout or beer  a splash

Method

  • Step 1

    Put all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir. Add some beer if it seems too stiff and get every member of the family to give it a stir and make a wish before you put it into a 1-litre pudding basin. Cover the top with a double layer of greaseproof paper and tie round the edge with string. Put on a trivet in a pan with water in the bottom, cover and steam for 1 hour 30 mins to 2 hours (insert a knife; it should come out not too sticky). Cool and store in a cold, dark place until christmas.

  • Step 2

    To finish cooking, steam for 30 minutes and serve with custard or brandy butter.
