Pudding is synonymous with Christmas. But it is traditionally unhealthy and can unwrap your health goals quicker than my 4 kids opening presents from Santa on Christmas morning.
My grandmother has been making our family's traditional English Christmas pudding, as given to her by her mother-in-law, for as long as I can remember. But… I can’t eat it anymore because of the flour. So, I’ve taken her recipe and adapted it to be a gluten-free (and slightly healthier) version.
125g Mixed Peel
125g Blanched Almonds
12g Mixed Spice
250g Coconut Sugar
300g Coconut Flour
1/4 tsp Bicarb Soda (dissolved in 125ml of rum)
Once boiled for 6 hours, hang the pudding on a hook until the calico is dry and store in a colander in the fridge until Christmas day.
On Christmas day, bring water to the boil in a very large pot. Simmer pudding in the calico for a further 1.5 hours. Hang pudding to cool. Once cooled, remove the calico gently and serve with egg custard.
