Yuletide is upon us and what better way to celebrate and indulge oneself….Christmas pudding/cake anyone!? In case you don’t have enough time to make it, here’s my take to make it super easy and quick. It will be done within the hour.

Servings 6-8 Portions


  • 150g butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • premixed dry fruits soaked in brandy (I used 410 g Waitrose Christmas brandy mincemeat which had sultanas, currants & raisins in 7 % brandy)
  • 1, ½ tsp mixed spice
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs


  • Beat 150g soft butter with 1/2 cup brown sugar.
  • Beat 2 eggs in the butter & sugar mix (1 egg at a time) and add premixed dry fruits soaked in brandy.
  • Further add mixed spice, vanilla extract, cranberry sauce, plain flour, fresh bread crumbs and combine all the ingredients well.
  • Grease well a round microwaveable bowl, line the bottom of the bowl with parchment paper & transfer the pudding mix in the bowl. Cover again with parchment paper & microwave on 40% power for 35 mins. Leave to cool in the microwave for another 15 minutes before serving.
