Light Christmas Pudding


The recipe for Delia's light Christmas pud calls for re-steaming for 1.5 hours after removing from freezer...

I have two questions...

Can I remove it from the freezer and keep it in the fridge for two days before eating?

And, how long would I need to put it in the microwave for if I chose to do that instead of re-steaming from frozen?

Thank you so much! :)

Light Christmas Pudding

Hello Natasha,

I’m sure it will be fine in the fridge for 2 days.

We don’t recommend microwaving Christmas puddings as they are so easily spoilt.

If you have to microwave the pudding I would suggest doing it for less time than you think, as it’s so easy to give it another 10 seconds.

Best wishes
