My mom’s holding a British-themed Christmas party and I’m interested in putting together a traditional (ish?) Christmas pudding, ideally with a custard sauce. I’d like to find one of the kinds where you soak it in brandy for a few weeks, since it’s early enough to do so.
However, I’m having trouble finding a workable recipe. I don’t know what a “pudding bowl” should look like, for one – what sort of options would I have as an American? Secondly, the recipes seem to all be “instead of doing it the traditional way, here’s the quick way”, but I’d just as soon know how to take the traditional route.
Does anyone have experiencing making Christmas puddings?
