RECIPE TIPS
JANE SAYS...

I’d normally leave whisky and Guinness to those made of sterner stuff, but a chaser of soft-whipped whisky cream is the perfect foil for my Guinness pudding. You can, of course, use any kind of stout, but then ‘whisky and stout pudding’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it. Soaking the fruit in Guinness really plumps it up and gives a rich, dark pudding without the bitterness of brandy or rum.
