Method

  1. First make the topping. Put the butter, double cream and maple syrup together in a small pan and stir over a low heat until well mixed. Bring to the boil, simmer for 1 min, then pour into the base of a buttered 900ml pudding basin.
  2. Sift the flour into a bowl with the cinnamon and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat the butter with the sugar and maple syrup until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg a little at a time. Fold the dry ingredients into the creamed butter and egg mixture, adding the milk to give a soft dropping consistency. Stir in nuts and raisins.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the basin, then cover with greased greaseproof paper and foil, making a pleat in the centre of both. Tie securely with string.
  4. Steam the pudding for 1½ hrs, checking regularly to make sure that the pan doesn’t boil dry. Turn out and serve with extra warmed maple syrup and a generous helping of double cream.

My Husband doesn't like Christmas pudding so I made this one a couple of years ago.
It went down a treat and has now replaced any other hot pudding I made in the past

This could pass as a lighter version of christmas pudding. Very nice although not very maple syrrup tasting. Easy to make. I used golden castor sugar instead of dark sugar and still came out very nice.
