Anyone have a particularly good recipe for Xmas pudding? Oh and it has to be vegetarian. In the past I've tended to use recipes without suet in, sometimes with butter instead I think - rather than the veggie suet substitute which I've always found a bit oily.

Enjoyed eating Mochyn's pudding last year, but really want to make my own again this year!

I made this recipe last year and it was very good :

Xmas Pudding [makes 2, or use half quantities for 1]

8oz marge
2 eggs, beaten
4oz wholewheat flour
4oz fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
8oz raisins
8oz currants
4oz sultanas
8oz stoned dates, chopped
2oz dried figs [or more dates]
2oz ground or chopped almonds
2oz chopped hazlenuts [or more almonds]
3 tbsps black treacle
2 tbsps orange rind
4 tbsps orange juice
1/4 pt milk
4 tbsps brandy

1. Beat marge, gradually beat in eggs, in the main mixing bowl
2. In smaller bowl, mix flour, breadcrumbs and spices
3. Add to main mixing bowl; stir in rest of ingredients
4. Beat well till all is mixed together

5. Divide mix between 2 x 1.5pt pudding bowls; cover with greased greaseporof paper and foil, pleated in centre to allow for rising.
6. Put bowls on a trivet or upturned saucer in two pans; pour in boiling water to come halfway up the sides; cover the pans and staem for 4 hours, adding more boiling water if needed.
7. Lift the bowls out and cool on a wire rack [pudding is still in the bowl !]
8. When cold, remove old greaseproof and foil, and replace with fresh, tied down with string. Store in cool, dry place.

9. To reheat at Xmas, steam as before but only for 2.5 hrs.

The only faff is the steaming. The rest is easy.
