From: md_norma@... (MD Norman)
Date: Fri, 29 Oct 1993 10:40:56 GMT Now is the time to prepare your Christmas puddings. This is a traditional English recipe.
Mix thoroughly the suet, flour, breadcrumbs, spices, and sugar. Mix in the fruit, mixed peel, nuts, chopped apple then the zest.
In a new bowl beat the eggs and add the stout and rum. Add to the dry ingredients, and stir VERY well ( it is best to use a very large bowl).
Cover the bowl and leave overnight.
Grease 2, 2 pint pudding basins and pack the mixture into them. Cover with greasproof paper and pudding cloths, tied on with string. Steam for 8 hours. Cool, and store in a dark, cool, dry cupboard. To reheat for eating, steam for 2 hours. Serve with Cumberland Rum Butter.
Cumberland Rum Butter: Blend butter and sugar, add rum slowly, and mix well. Pack into molds for serving and chill. Remove from fridge just before serving.
