    having never made christmas pudding before i got to the 2 hr stage and freaked out that it wasn't cooked because it looked too moist, so kept on cooking for another hour. i probably overcooked it in hindsight, but was still delicious. i will definitely try this again, but next time using the recommended cooking time. thanks crazy rat lady.

    I would like to make this but wondering about the cooking time, most puddings are cooked for 5-6 hours. Is the cooking time correct?
