  1. Add all of the dry pudding ingredients to a large mixing bowl and combine them until they are thoroughly combined.

  • Use string or twine to fasten the foil into place before putting it into a steamer.

  • Steam the Christmas pudding on high for at least 2 ½ hours.

  • Once the pudding is finished cooking, remove it from the steamer and move onto preparing the sauce.

  • Add the butter to a saucepan and set it on a burner at medium heat.

  • Once the butter completely melts, slowly whisk in the remaining sauce ingredients, including brown sugar, vanilla, and double cream.

  • When the mixture begins to boil and bubble, set a timer to 3 minutes, then cook the sauce until it goes off.
