Vegan Christmas Pudding. I haven’t made one before, I found this recipe on the Vegan Society website but I’ve tweaked it! Its so incredibly easy and the result is a light and very tasty pud. I was not disappointed and I love Christmas pudding! #vegan #veganrecipes #veganchristmas #plantbasedchristmas #jerseyvegan #veganchristmaspudding
Ingredients
85g spelt flour
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp powdered ginger
1/2 tsp salt
75g coconut sugar
40g breadcrumbs
100g vegan suet (the organic shop)
½ tsp baking powder
2 tbsp orange marmalade
6 tbsp of liquid – this can be plant milk, stout, ale, sherry, brandy or rum. I used brandy!
zest and juice of one orange and one lemon
100g mixed peel
350g) mixed dried fruit t e.g. sultanas, raisins, currents,(optionally you can also soak the fruit in alcohol for up to a week before)
500g chopped dates
75g chopped walnuts
75g dried cranberries, chopped
Method
Add all the other ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well to a soft dropping consistency.
Grease a 2 pint basin well and fill with the mixture leaving about 2 1/2 cm free from the top to allow for rising. Cover with greaseproof paper and aluminium foil and secure with string. Place in a saucepan and pour in boiling water halfway up the sides of the basin. Simmer gently for 4 hours, topping up the water as necessary. I made 3 smaller puds which only needed 2 hours steaming
Once cooked the pudding can be kept cold until needed. It will keep for up to a month. (It’s also yummy cold!)
Large pud Serves approx 6-8 people
