This is my mother’s recipe. I usually make it October bank holiday weekend. I soak fruit and nuts Friday night. Mix the rest of the ingredients in Saturday. Add in extra Guinness if needed Sunday and boil Monday.
1/2 teaspoon each salt and mixed spice.
4oz butter / melted
1/4 pint Guinness
8oz each sultanas and raisins
2oz each cherries, mixed peel and chopped almonds.
Juice and rind of an orange and lemon
One cooking apple grated.
1/2 glass whiskey or brandy
Mix fruit and nuts with whiskey and leave overnight
Mix in rest of ingredients and leave overnight
Add more Guinness if needed
Makes between 2 and 4 puddings, depending on what bowls you’ve got.
I cover with disk of greaseproof paper and tinfoil.
Boil for 3 to 4 hours. I store in fridge. They hold for up to a year.
Boil for an hour before serving with custard and cream.
