Memories of decades ago, mom used to make them, with the pudding cloth tied and the corners looped back up, tied together and hung on hooks in the pantry for the next year, must make my own instead of buying one.

Very nice.

But Mrs. Crocombe from English Heritage set it afire with a holly on top. It's apparently flame-proof for a minute or so.

Has anyone converted the recipe to Imperial measurements? Never converted a recipe before and am concerned I will not get it right. Grams to ounces or grams to cups? Weight or volume? Help.

Is the pudding served straight away from cooking or does it need to set? Thank you.

Cheese cloth might work as well.

Very good video. Easy to understand and to follow. But you forgot one very important step. You didn't soak the fruit in the alcohol. And it sure would have made a nice ending to your video to see you light it on fire and serve it. :)

You did a great job! American Heritage has a segment where they cook “the Victorian way” and they make this and other foods exactly as they did back then. If you like this you will really enjoy that.

Ahem... you did not just plop your pudding into the pot without a trivet underneath and boil it for 3 hours did you?

My mother used to do the ball METHOD. Pour it into a mutton cloth and hang in the pot. I even made one once. Either way they are moorish,.

I’m American and didn’t grow up with having a pudding at Christmas. I’ve wanted to make one the last couple of years. I think its too late for me to make one this year. Next year for sure

What size basin is that? I just picked up a 900ml/0.95 quart basin but not sure if that is too small.

Thanks for sharing , my question is if I don’t want to steam right away and just store it after mixing all the eggs will it go bad with all the egg just storing it . I want to keep it a few days raw before Christmas 🎄

I have loved Dickens all of my life since watching Alistair in that 1951 best version. but all recipes (But for Fanny Credcock's) Recipes have the batter so loose it cant's be molded into a Ball like the original one in the Book. how can I add something to make it mold without destroying the Taste?
