Slow Cooker Chocolate Christmas Pudding …

Slow Cooker Chocolate Christmas Pudding

  As long as I can remember, our family has always served a traditional Christmas Pudding on Christmas Day. It’s such a tradition that we even get together, about 6 weeks before Christmas, to make our puddings in cloths using a fourth-generation recipe that our kids are now learning. After the puddings are prepared and cooked, they’re hung in the garage so the flavour can really develop, you can read more about that here.   Sadly though, the traditional Christmas Pudding doesn’t appeal to everyone and most kids will usually turn their noses up when it’s served. … read more

Rice Pudding …

Rice Pudding 001

  Rice Pudding is such an easy yet delicious recipe. It was one of the first recipes I learned to cook and this particular recipe is the original one that Mum taught me. It’s classic and simple, using basic ingredients that you’ll find in the fridge and pantry and is one of those fantastic comfort foods to warm tummies in winter.   I love this particular recipe because it doesn’t use too much sugar. I normally serve it topped with chopped fresh fruit, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon but the serving possibilities are endless.   I love the consistency … read more

It’s quick and easy to make and the result is decadent, smooth and a velvety soft texture that is delightful to eat.   This is the perfect “make ahead of time” dessert which I often whip up the day before or on the morning I plan to serve it. Serve it in a small ramekin with some berries on top or my other suggestion is to serve a small amount of the mousse in a clear serving glass with loads of beautiful chopped fruit and a dollop of cream on the top … mmmm … yum!   Chocolate Mousse … read more

  Recently I shared one of my family traditions … Pudding Day. Every year, about 6 weeks before Christmas, my family gets together to make our Christmas Puddings in the old, traditional way. We use a family recipe that has been handed down through the generations, ingredients are mixed by hand and the puddings are wrapped in calico and hung for 6 weeks before being devoured on Christmas Day.   Now, if you haven’t made a Christmas Pudding for this year, there’s still time and this gorgeous Slow Cooker Sticky Date Pudding is a delicious alternative to a traditional … read more
