  • I cheat and buy the ready made from Coles. I add extra brandy to the pudding by flambeeing it

    55g butter
    55g plain flour
    570ml milk
    55g fine/caster sugar
    5 tbsp Brandy or Cognac, or if you prefer use dark Rum

    Prep Time: 5 minutes
    Cook Time: 15 minutes

    Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat, add the flour and stir to create a thick paste. Cook for 1 minute taking care not to burn.Using a hand whisk, slowly add the milk, stirring vigorously. Continue whisking until thick smooth sauce is formed (about 5 minutes). Do not have the heat too high or the base of the sauce may burn.Add the sugar and whisk until dissolved. Lower the heat and cook for 5 minutes stirring from time to time.Finally add the brandy and serve with the Christmas pudding.

  • You could make a basic custard using custard powder etc. and add some brandy to it.
    If there are children you could add imitation brandy essence instead. Essences have a small amount of alcohol in them anyway. If having guests you haven’t previously cooked for please ensure none of them are allergic to alcohol – no I am not joking – I know of a guy who was allergic to alcohol who died as a result of being given a drink that had a teaspoon of an alcoholic substance, his heart stopped and CPR failed.
