• 75g Currants
• 75g Sultanas
• 115g Raisins, Seedless
• 50ml Brandy, 37.5% Volume
• 75g Cherries, Glace
• 75g Flour, White, Self Raising
• ½ Tsp Cinnamon Powder
• 50g Breadcrumbs
• 50g Sugar, Light Muscovado
• 1 Tsp Lemon, Peel, Raw
• 1 Tsp Oranges, Peel, Raw
• 115g Apples, Sliced
• 115g Carrots, Grated
• 1 Tbsp Fresh Lemon
• 2 Medium sized eggs
• 60ml Milk, Skimmed
• 2 Tbsp Molasses
• 60ml Brandy, 37.5% Volume

First of all soak the dried fruit in the brandy overnight.

Once soaked, shake the cherries in the flour and add mixed spice, cinnamon, breadcrumbs, sugar (and some gravy browning).

Mix in the grated zest, apple and carrot along with the lemon juice. Then add the soaked fruit.

Beat the eggs with the milk and molasses, slowly add to the mixture, stirring well. Mix gently but thoroughly.

Place your mixture in a 1.2 litre ovenproof dish. If you wish to microwave the pudding, place an upturned plate over the dish and microwave on high for 5 minutes (make sure it's a microwave safe dish).

Leave to stand for 5 minutes, then microwave for a further 5 minutes. If you wish to steam the pudding, cover with foil or pudding cloth, and then steam gently for 3 hours.

Once cooked allow to cool and then wrap in foil and leave in a cool dry place until required.
Before reheating, prick the pudding several times and pour some more brandy over the top.

Steam for 1-2 hours (or microwave on high for 10 minutes)
