My 12 loves of Christmas - #4

Traditional Christmas Pudding with either my Gran's amazing white sauce, or brandy butter. Christmas Pudding is a very rich fruit and sponge/suet pudding, steeped in brandy or whisky usually and lit by a match so it enters the room covered in blue flames!

You really don't know what you're missing out on over here.

It took me a couple of tries, but now I am hooked on Christmas pud! But I always joke how everything in England is a fruitcake -- the wedding cake (fruitcake); birthday cakes (fruitcake); Christmas cakes (fruitcake) .... but as John says, you could love on Christmas pudding if you found yourself on a deserted island!
