This Gluten Free Christmas pudding is the best way to end up your Christmas dinner celebration.
It is filled with dried fruit, and you can make it in advance and it will keep to be served perfectly fresh the next day and enjoy it with your family and friends. Since it keeps well, you can definitely enjoy some leftover holiday goodness.
This is a variation of many gluten free Christmas pudding and cakes.
I love this recipe, it’s worth the try. Not only is it gluten-free, but it’s also free from eggs, soy, wheat, dairy, and nuts. It’s still delicious.
Prep Time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 8hrs.
100g oat flour or almond flour
2 tsp mixed spice
50g mixed peel
1 orange, rind and juice
1 lemon, rind and juice
Take a bowl, put in the flour, sugar, and spices. Mix well.
On a separate bowl, chop the prunes and apricots, mix in with the raisins, currants, and peel. Reserve.
Separately, grate the orange and lemon peel. Place these in a bowl. Then add the juice of both the lemon and orange. Add in the oil and stir. Mix in prunes, apricots, raisins, currants, and peel.
Take the mixture of dry ingredients, flour, sugar, and spices and add it to the wet ingredient’s mixture. Mix until it is perfectly together. Cover this and reserve it for a minimum of two hours, or even overnight.
You’ll need a pudding basin. Spread some oil around the sides of your pudding base.
Take a sheet of parchment paper and cut two circles the size of the top of the pudding basin.
Now, take your mixture and place it into the pudding basin, smooth the top.
Take the cut parchment paper circles and cover the pudding.
Take some tin foil and cover the top of the pudding basin and tucking it well around the rim.
Now, take a deep saucepan, place the pudding basin inside and fill it with water carefully until it’s halfway the pudding basin.
Cover the saucepan and boil for 6 hours. Be sure to check and add extra water as needed.
After the time has passed, remove the pudding basin and let cool without removing the foil.
Before serving, remove the foil and parchment paper pieces. Take back to the saucepan, add the same amount of water as before and steam lightly for 2 hours.
Remove from heat carefully, let sit for 10 minutes. Grab a large plate and place on top of the basin and invert the pudding into it.
