I really enjoyed doing all my baking and cooking over Christmas, especially when it was so enjoyed.
The dish I enjoyed making the most though, had to be The Christmas Pudding, Its something I have wanted to make for many years.
Thanks to my friend Caity, who made me aware of a Jamie Oliver recipe, that only needed 3 hours steaming,this year I had no excuse not to make that pudding !
A few people had wondered if it really would be a Christmas pudding with just 3 hours steaming but let me tell you… it was and the empty dishes told me it was ! not a crumb was left.
Luckily I hadÂ some of the mixture left and have 3 small puddings here at home so I can have a second tasting 🙂
2012 baking challenge is going to be a bread one, using the book,Five Minute Bread but Santa didn’t know it was on my list so first I have to order the book 🙂
I’ve enjoyed looking at your Christmas baking in your last few posts. The pudding looked delicious – I love Christmas pudding.
As for the bread, I’ve been on a breadfest since I got Paul Hollywood’s book for my birthday – I’m totally addicted to bread making now. Go for it!
Glad someone is enjoying my blog posts 🙂 The bread book is ordered and i will let you know how I get along x
