Christmas in a bowl

I have decided that this year I am going to make my own Christmas foods as far as possible, particularly Christmas cake, Christmas pudding and mincemeat. I have decided to do these things in particular so that Stephanie can have a try, she can't eat shop bought due to her citrus allergy. I made the Christmas pudding tonight loosely based on a Delia Smith recipe. I made a couple of changes; I left out all the peels and I used only rum and a little apple juice instead of the wine, stout and rum Delia calls for.

The children helped to make the mix, Stephanie was most impressed. We all agree it smells Divine- just like Christmas in a bowl. Stephanie had a little taste of the mix and liked it.

No my kitchen isn't doesn't have doll sized counters- Dylan decided he needs to stand on the stool with Stephanie!

My turn to mix!


  1. Fantastic! Everyone gets a stir in our house, too.
