You can either blend the butter and sugar together till pale, soft and creamy in a food processor or else use an electric hand whisk.
When you have a pale smooth mixture you can gradually add the rum, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
Taste and add more rum if you think it needs it!
Then place the butter in a freezer box or bag and transfer to the freezer.
Brandy Butter: Use about 6 tablespoons of brandy instead of rum.

This is the classic steamed Christmas pudding - with a recipe from Delia that will stand the test of time and become a staple of your festive celebrations.
If you've got leftover mincemeat this will cheer up a January Sunday lunch beautifully. A ready-made pastry flan case will also save you time, which we have discovered works really well when frozen first.
