This was super tasty. Took longer than 1 and 1/2 hours to coo, but that might just be me... Never seem to have much luck with steaming!

Delicious!! I didn't have mixed peel so used raisons instead, I also used Atora Light as I am on a low cholesterol diet. It didn't seem to affect the finished pud. I will make this again.
