The instruction how to make Last-minute christmas pudding

  1. Sift the flour, mixed spice, nutmeg and ginger into a large bowl and stir in the soft brown sugar, dried fruit, dates and almonds.
  2. Bring the milk and butter or margarine to the boil in a saucepan. Remove from heat. Add the vanilla essence and bicarbonate of soda and stir well. Pour milk mixture into the fruit mixture and stir until well combined. (The pudding mixture will be quite wet.)
  3. Spoon pudding mixture onto the centre of the calico cloth and gather up the cloth around the mixture. Tie the calico tightly with string to seal about 3cm above mixture to allow for expansion during cooking.
  4. Fill a large saucepan 1/4 full with water and bring to the boil. Add pudding (the water should come 1/2 way up side of pudding). Cover with a lid and boil over medium heat for 3 hours, adding extra boiling water when necessary during cooking.
  5. Remove pudding from saucepan and stand for 10 minutes. Carefully peel away calico, turn onto on a plate and dust with icing sugar.
  6. If not eating on the day of making, hang from a cupboard door until cold and then transfer to the fridge. To reheat, boil the pudding in water as before for 45 minutes.
