    My first Christmas pudding 😊My first Christmas pudding 😊
    My very first go at a Christmas pudding.
    Very easy.
    Quick clean up.
    Simple recipe to follow.
    I used 60g of each; sultanas, currants and raisins.
    I used Bundaberg Rum (15g extra, accidentally 😆)
    My husband commented after eating leftovers, that he enjoyed it more, than both his mum's and his sisters sago plum pudding!!!

    "Let's have this more often", was his last remark.

    Thank you for sharing 😇
