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!

Hi I have just registered and was hoping to see a reply to the questions below. Can anyone give advice as to whether to make this pudding now for Christmas or would it be best to leave nearer the time? Many thanks Eliza52

How do you store this, and how long for?

How do you store this (in the fridge?) and how long for?

Is this pudding one that is made in advance and matured, or is it one that is made at the time of eating? This is the first time I have made a low fat Christmas pudding as I usually make the full fat suet version and mature it for a couple of months. Many thanks for your advice with this.
