Christmas is here and do you know what could make it better? The royal family's traditional Christmas pudding! The Windsors' chefs recently shared their longtime method of preparing the sweet treat, which you can even prepare ahead of time. Read on if you're interested in preparing this royal treat for your loved ones this festive season!
In most recent years, the royal family has given the public, heartwarming treats by sharing some of their traditional recipes. With Christmas fast approaching, it isn't surprising that we are getting another such recipe from the Windsor chefs.
In a post shared via the royal family's official Instagram account, they wrote:
"Today is Stir-up Sunday: traditionally the day when home cooks ‘stir up' their Christmas pudding mixture on the Sunday before the Advent season—and the countdown to Christmas—begins. This year, chefs in the Royal kitchens have shared their recipe for a traditional Christmas pudding. We hope that some of you enjoy making it in your own homes."
A short how-to video accompanies the statement for the delicious treat. The recipe only requires a few steps making it easy to follow. Even better, it can be pre-made!
First, mix the dry ingredients, and then add the eggs and alcohol. The pudding mix is then transferred into bowls, covered with parchment paper and muslin, and then heated in a saucepan.
Instead of waiting until Christman day to prepare this special treat, you can make it ahead of time. All you would have to do is "reheat your pudding in a bain-marie for 3-4 hours. Remove from the basin using a rounded knife or palette knife, flip out onto a plate, garnish or flambé and serve with brandy sauce and cream."
We are sure that you'll enjoy this treat with your loved ones, so don't forget to share the recipe with others. Remember, sharing is caring!
