  • Serves: 4-6

This is a really tasty and light pudding which could make a great alternative to a traditional Christmas pudding - just incase you've forgotten all about the pudding because you were so busy with the turkey!


  • 100g plain flour
  • 1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1tsp of mixed spice
  • 100g suet
  • 100g raisins
  • 100g currants
  • 100g potato, grated
  • 100g carrots, grated
  • 100g Demerara sugar
  • 100g fine breadcrumbs
  • 25g chopped glace cherries
  • 1 large egg, beaten


  1. Mix the flour, soda, spice well together. Add all the other ingredients except the egg, mix all ingredients well together and thoroughly. Then add the egg and bind well, if it is a little too stiff, add a little milk as well.
  2. Pour into a large greased pudding basin, leaving space at the top as the mixture will expand during cooking. Cover with a double layer of greaseproof paper and tie with string.
  3. Steam for 3 hours.
  4. Serve with loads of custard, brandy sauce or double cream.
