No faffing. You just mix the ingredients and cook in the microwave. It comes out perfectly. The brandy butter goes well with the mince pies too.
QUICK & EASY CHRISTMAS PUDDING
285g (10oz) mincemeat * 140g (5oz) fine-shred orange marmalade * 225g (8oz) molasses cane sugar * 4 tbsp black treacle * 3 eggs, beaten * 4 tbsp whisky * 115g (4oz) butter, frozen and coarsely grated * 225g (8oz) self-raising flour
Butter and line the base of a 1.5 litre/2¾ pint pudding basin with greaseproof paper. In a large bowl, stir in the ingredients together, adding them one at a time in the order listed, until everything is completely mixed. Tip the pudding mix into the basin and cover with a circle of greaseproof paper. Place the pudding basin on a plate and microwave on medium for 20-25 minutes until cooked. Check by inserting a skewer to see if it comes out clean. Leave to stand for 5 minutes then turn out. Serve with the brandy butter.
