Ah, Christmas. The one time of year when it’s OK, just for a while, to abandon self-discipline and indulge in the things you enjoy without worrying about it. And if you’re going to treat yourself, why not do it properly with this exquisite Christmas pudding from Wilkin and Sons?
As soon as you get your hands on this rich fruit pudding, you’ll know that it’s something special. Open the beautiful, rigid red box (taking a moment to note that it’s been hand-signed by the person who packed it), and you will find a cake, carefully wrapped in cheesecake, set into its own earthenware bowl. It’s ready for steaming (or microwaving), and will look great placed straight on the table afterwards. And the good news is it’s pre-cooked, which means it only needs to be heated up – no need to steam this one for hours!
Like so many of their products, this rich, fruity cake is made without compromise, using traditional ingredients of the highest quality. As well as the usual raisins, sultanas and currants (and of course French brandy!), it even features some of their famous ‘Tawny’ marmalade. The result is dense and incredibly rich, but with plenty of citrus to balance out the flavour and add lightness.
If you suffer from nut allergies, you will be pleased to hear that this is a Christmas pudding you can enjoy without worry. Not only does the recipe contain no nuts of any kind, but even the factory in which they are produced is completely nut-free. Many other Christmas puddings contain nuts, so it’s good to know a safe choice is available – especially when it’s this tasty!
Christmas dinner is the biggest, most important meal of the year – why not make sure it’s also the most enjoyable? Wilkin and Sons’ Christmas Pudding is the perfect way to round it off in luxurious, indulgent style. Don’t forget the brandy butter!
