6oz fresh breadcrumbs
6oz plain flour
1-2 tsp spices
24oz dried fruits
2 small eggs
So I ended up with three sorts of booze but all brandy based. Into the fruit mix I snipped some organic glacé cherries - nothing like the usual bright red ones and still had a slightly tart cherry taste. Only used almonds although many times I have included Brazils or pecans as well.
Filled a lot of mismatched bowls and cups to make five puddings. They are steaming now and filling the kitchen with a divine smell.
I had bought so much dried fruit that decided to also make mincemeat which commits me to making mince pies thIs year. Unlike last year when we were in Kenya. Hey ho austerity calling.........
