I have just made 4 Christmas Puds! Yay!! I probably need to make another two. I usually make them two at a time, and each batch is always slightly different. I've also used maraschino cherries, apricots, tinned cherries, in fact anything suitable that I have handy. Somehow they are always delicious. If you have a go at making one - you'll love it and will never buy another one :).
