- Don’t waste time steaming your pud for hours – stick it in the microwave for a few minutes and the results will be just as good. This frees up your hob for other Christmas essentials too.
- For a flaming pud warm the brandy slightly before pouring it over the pudding so that it will definitely ignite when you put a flame to it.
