  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 175g leftover Christmas pudding
  • 2-3 tbsp brandy or orange liquer



    Brandy is a distilled spirit made from virtually any fermented fruit or starchy vegetable.…

  • 300ml pot double cream


  1. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar with an electric whisk for 10 mins until pale and thick. Break up the Christmas pudding with a fork and stir it into the egg mixture so it is evenly distributed, then pour in the brandy and mix again.

  2. In a separate bowl, whip the cream until it holds soft peaks, then fold it into the mixture with a large metal spoon. Pour into a freezer-proof container, cover well and freeze for several hours until set.

Brilliant recipe! Really easy to make and tastes absolutely scrumptious! All my family were very impressed at Christmas! Wish I could get Christmas pudding throughout the year so I could make it now often!

Would this work in an ice-cream maker?
