How to Make Christmas Pudding with Cranberry Gelatin

This traditional English dessert resembles a cannonball made from dried fruits, eggs, butter, spices, and alcohol. It can be served with custard or brandy sauce, or a tasty Christmas pudding sauce using flour, but serving Christmas pudding with gelatin is something else you might like to consider, since the gelatin gives it a texture similar to poke cake and envelopes the whole pudding so it is moist and delicious for longer. Traditionally, a three pence coin or a sixpence (neither which is still in circulation in the UK) is baked in the pudding and the person who finds it is going to have a financially good coming year.

According to the history of Christmas pudding, these desserts were boiled in a pudding cloth in the 1800s and they are steamed for many hours. Modern ones might use a pressure cooker instead to shorten the cooking time. The pudding is traditionally adorned with a sprig of holly. Recipes for this dish appear from the 1600s, so it is a very old recipe.

The following recipe for Christmas pudding is based on a genuine English recipe finished off with a coating of cranberry gelatin. It comes from “The White House Cook Book” and this recipe was used to make Christmas puddings for several presidents of the United States. The presidents did not have the gelatin coating on theirs but perhaps you think it makes the dessert even more delicious! Continue reading
