"Flaming Christmas Puddings followed the turkey"

You can't finish a Christmas dinner without the classic Christmas Pudding, but do you wonder how they might serve them at Hogwarts?


This flaming Christmas pudding recipe is nice and easy to make so once you've made the filling you can sit back and enjoy the festivities while they steam away! I've created mine with four different bases (or toppings) which your guests can flip over to reveal their Hogwarts House!


Harry Potter Christmas Pudding Recipe Ingredients:

(makes 4 small Christmas puddings)

  • 500g dried mixed fruits

  • 100g vegetable suet

  • 100g plain flour

  • 75g golden caster sugar

  • 50g muscovado sugar

  • 125g breadcrumbs

  • zest of an orange

  • 1/4 tsp mixed spice

  • 1 egg

  • 125ml milk

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

  • 2 tbsp spiced rum

  • cherries, pistachios, orange, dates and rum to finish

Flaming Christmas Pudding Recipe Method:

  1. To prepare your pudding mixture using the all in one method, place the fruit, suet, flour, breadcrumbs, sugar, zest of orange and mixed spice into a bowl. Then add in the eggs, milk, vanilla and rum. Give this a good mix (preferably with a stand mixer) for 2 minutes until well incorporated.

  2. Generously grease the pudding moulds with butter and then fill the bottom with your Hogwarts House inspired toppings - I'm using glace cherries for Gryffindor, oranges for Hufflepuff, prunes for Ravenclaw and pistachios for Slytherin.

  3. Spoon the pudding mixture over the top and then press down before sealing with a lid or baking paper tied with string.

  4. Place the moulds into a saucepan with 2 inches of boiling water in the bottom before placing the lid on top. Keep on a low heat and allowing them to steam for 2 hours.

  5. Once ready, turn the puddings out into your serving dish. Heat the alcohol in a ladle and then place a flame to the top. Working quickly pour the alcohol over the top and allow to go out completely before eating

Careful! These magical flaming Christmas Puddings really are on fire!
