This is by far the best Christmas Pudding I have ever made. I steamed it rather than microwave it to keep it moist. This is full of flavour without that claggy feeling in the mouth left by suet. This will be the recipe I use every year from now.

Lovely easy recipe! Made this a couple of times now and its so moist and tastey. I always steam it not microwave and I think its worth the extra time. Scrummy!
