Vickys Lighter Christmas Pudding, GF DF EF SF NF

You can’t buy gluten free things here that are egg free too and I don’t like to make Jack something separate for Christmas puddin…more


10 servings

  1. Stork block margarine or butter for greasing the tin

  2. 100 grams gluten-free / plain flour

  3. 1 tsp baking powder

  4. 100 grams sunflower / olive spread (Vitalite) / Stork block margarine

  5. 100 grams raisins

  6. 100 grams sultanas

  7. 100 grams currants

  8. 100 grams caster (superfine) sugar

  9. 100 grams fresh gluten-free breadcrumbs

  10. 1 tsp mixed spice (see below)

  11. 150 ml light coconut milk

  12. 2 tbsp brandy

  13. Brandy Sauce to serve, see recipe linked below


  1. Grease a 2 pint / 1.2 litre pudding basin very well with some margarine

  2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and add the sunflower spread / margarine, rubbing it in with your fingertips to create ‘breadcrumbs’

  3. Mix in the raisins, sultanas, currants, sugar, breadcrumbs and mixed spice

  4. Stir in the milk and brandy to make a really thick batter. You may need more milk if using gluten-free flour, around 2 tablespoons or so

  5. Spoon into the greased pudding bowl

  6. Cover with baking paper or foil with a pleat in the middle to allow space for the pudding to rise. Secure the paper/ foil under the rim of the bowl

  7. Get a large pan of water simmering and put the pudding bowl inside. The water should sit 2/3 of the way up the side of the bowl

  8. Put the lid on the pan and let the pudding steam for 3 hours. Take care removing the hot bowl from the pan

  9. Let cool if not serving immediately and recover with clean parchment/foil. The pudding will keep well in the fridge for up to 3 weeks

  10. Re-steam for 90 minutes before serving if the pudding has been cooled and stored

  11. You’ll need to invert the pudding basin to get it out so put a plate over the top

  12. Carefully flip the plate and bowl over. The pudding will release easily

  13. Slice into 6 wedges and serve with my Sweet Brandy Cream Sauce or some hot custard
