John 1:14

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

If you need a quick, Christmas Pudding, look no further - providing you have the ingredients you can make this in a jiffy.

5 x 5 x 5 x 5 Microwave Christmas Pud

For this quick and easy pud you will need a 1½ pint pudding basin, lightly greased. It also helps if you pop a circle of grease-proof paper into the base.

Your ingredients:

3 oz plain flour

1½ oz fresh breadcrumbs – brown are best

½ teaspoon ground mixed spice

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

3 oz Demerara sugar

3 oz dark brown sugar (if you have it, if not use the sugar you have)

12 oz mixed fruit (raisins, sultanas, cherries, currants, etc. Chopped apricots are nice too)

1½chopped nuts (optional)

1 small apple, peeled, cored and grated (or finely chopped)

Juice and grated rind of an orange

2 fl oz milk

3 oz butta (you can use margarine, but it won’t taste as nice)

2 oz plain chocolate – yes, chocolate – chopped

1 medium egg, beaten.

2 tablespoons brandy or rum

Here’s all you need to do:

Sieve the flour and spices into a bowl and stir in the breadcrumbs, sugar, dried fruit, nuts apple and orange rind.

In a small microwaveable bowl, put the chocolate, butta, milk and orange juice. Microwave on ‘de-frost’ for 2½ minutes, until it’s all melted.

Add the liquids to the dry ingredients and mix them all together. Add the beaten egg and brandy (or rum).

Spon it all into your prepared basin and cover with greaseproof paper.

Microwave on full power for 5 minutes. Leave to stand for 5 minutes, then microwave for 5 more minutes.

Turn out and leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving with your favourite sauce.
