You’re invited: let’s make Christmas Pudding together

Do I need to write anything more than that? Here’s some extra bits if you need more convincing that a homemade Christmas Pudding is the thing for you this year in 2021.


The recipe was shared on an A5 piece of paper, with handwritten instructions including how and where to find a few nips of Brandy. Sent to my mum via snail mail.

I’ve shared this recipe on my site and socials yearly since I started and I love watching you cook along from your home. I also know there are a lot of you who want to try your hand at pudding but need some extra hand holding.

Let’s make Christmas Pudding together.

If you haven’t ever made your own Christmas pudding and are wondering why you’d go to the effort. It’s tradition mate…. and life’s too long (and short) to eat a supermarket made pudding.

My classes are fun, light hearted and will make you laugh, although I steep them in truth. There’s no sugar coating the fact that we’re all pretending we have no time to cook and missing out on so much by passing the responsibility on (and even when there’s really no time, there’s always something that’s easy to make).


I often make smaller puddings as gifts or to take to Christmas parties (yes I sound like I’m 70 years old). Everyone loves a pudding, so if you’re stuck for Christmas gifts and want to DIY some homemade gifts. A pudding is perfect.


9am, Saturday 4 December.

Online, from the comfort of your kitchen.
A replay will be available after the class so if you can’t make the time you can catch up.

Heads up: My boy BJ will most likely be at my feet or on the bench during this class.


I can’t wait to cook with you.



I’m keen, do I need anything special to cook this? You need a pudding steamer, a stainless steel bowl (of an appropriate size), china bowls, mugs, soup mugs, ramekins, teacups (but not fine bone china) – almost anything that will withstand the heat from boiling water and can be covered securely with a piece of foil or a pudding cloth.

Is this gluten free? Oh hell no. Unless you’re a Celiac, I’d say, just use the gluten for a day. I have clients who do use gluten free flour, however I haven’t tested it and can’t personally stand behind it.

Is this sugar free? Not a chance. I do substitute the sugars for coconut or panella, which are both not as processed and retain some goodness in them. Plus this recipe contains a whole lot of dried fruit.

How do we cook together? This class will be held online. Either Zoom or a private Facebook group, it’ll depend on the group size. If you can’t attend live there’ll be a class replay for you to watch whenever you’re ready to.

What if I can’t attend live? If you can’t attend live there’ll be a class replay for you to watch whenever you’re ready to.

How long doe I have access to the class replay for? Forever or until this website no longer exists and if that happens you’ll be given ample time to take what you need from the content.

Will it last til Chrissy day? Yep, this thing is full of sugar. My Great Aunty Dot used to store it in an airtight container. I’m always a little concerned due to the Aussie summer heat and store it in the fridge.
