Jon Los’ Christmas Pudding
The traditional Christmas pudding is an undeniable part of Christmas culture – hate it or love it, a Christmas dinner would not be complete without a pudding! Our exceedingly talented Head Chef, Jon Los has already begun his festive preparations for a wonderful Christmas in Wiltshire. He has also very kindly provided us with his secret recipe to help ensure your Christmas Pudding is a roaring success this year.
112g Vegetable Suet
112g Demerara Sugar
28g Nibbed Almonds
60g Plain Flour
60g Mixed Peel
24g Lemon Juice
2g Nutmeg Ground
1 Teaspoon Marmalade
1 Bramley Apple (peeled and grated)
50 G Maple Syrup
Mix all ingredients together ensuring there are no pockets of flour or breadcrumbs and that all ingredients are mixed and coated in the mix.
Butter Dariole Moulds and place a small circle of greaseproof paper to cover the base.
Add the mix ¾ of the way up and tin foil moulds individually.
Place in a Bain Marie and bake in the oven at 140 Celsius for 2 hours, ensuring that the Bain Marie does not boil dry.
285ml Double Cream
4 egg yolks
1 vanilla Pod
25 ml Brandy
Boil the cream then mix the yolks, sugar and vanilla seeds together, pour the cream onto the yolks and add back into the pan and cook until thickened. Then add the brandy and cook for another 30 seconds, making sure it doesn’t overcook as the yolks will scramble.
Serve with Brandy custard and fresh berries and ice cream.
