Traditional Steamed Christmas Pudding is the Queen of Christmas Puddings! With this dark, sticky and sweet pudding…you’ll savour every bite!

This Traditional Style Christmas Pudding will take you quite a while to make – but the results will be incredible.  This recipe has been in my family for four generations and we have it every single year, no matter how how it is outside!  We always have it with piping hot homemade custard, and the kids have it with vanilla ice cream.

Make this recipe a month or two in advance so that the flavours in the pudding have time to ripen!


  1. Add brandy to dried fruit and apple and set aside to soak well.

  2. Beat butter and brown sugar, then add eggs one at a time. Beat well and add golden syrup with last egg.

  3. Sieve dry ingredients into butter mixture then add fruit and mix well. Put into 2 litre pudding basin and steam for two hours.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Traditional Steamed Christmas Pudding can be frozen up to six months.
