Replacing the Suet with Butter and carefully crafting the old recipe with Gluten Free flour and rice crumb results in this pudding being equally distinct and rich. This recipe is jubilant with fruit (56%) and Stout (10%) and Muscat. No less than 23 ingredients jostle with each other to give layers of taste as you indulge – what celebrating should be all about. There is no other pudding like Christmas pudding, steeped in tradition and even banned at one time in history for being too extravagant! Already steamed by us in its basin, all that is left for you to do is gently reheat in its basin, tip out and serve as a fitting finale to your festive meal. Grandma shared her baking prowess – traditional methods and values enabling Crooked Creek to create a Gluten Free and Vegetarian pudding of which we are very proud.
