Christmas puddings of all types


The nation will be full steam ahead with Delia's Classic Christmas pudding, but there are other options, including a cheat's pud, an iced pudding and easy-peasy souffles that Delia describes as her 'all time favourite Christmas party dessert'.

Get stirring!

Delia explains the background to Stir-Up Sunday – and debunks the myth that Christmas pudding is stodgy or that it needs to be kept for months before eating.

Full steam ahead...

As well as Delia’s much-loved Classic Christmas pudding, this page features a lighter version, an iced pud, other traditional favourites and even a light dessert that manages to encompass all the flavours of Christmas pudding. Add chilled rum sabayon and we’re in pudding heaven!

But what if you don’t like Christmas pudding?

Mulled wine sorbet, cinnamon ice cream, little mincemeat soufflé puddings and Cranachan with Caramelised Oatmeal & Raspberry Sauce are just a few of the lusciously indulgent recipes for alternative festive desserts.

Small wonders

Florentines, walnut shortbreads, mince pies and shortbread stars are just a few of the delectable morsels on offer in this page of Christmassy treats for the cake or biscuit tin...perfect with a cuppa!
