PREPARATION

  • 1 Line the base of a 1L pudding bowl or Pyrex bowl with the cherries.
  • 2 Roughly tear apart the fruit cake and then crumble with your fingertips. (This can be a coarse crumb).
  • 3 Dissolve Aeroplane Original Port Wine Jelly Crystals in boiling water, and then add to the cake crumbs, mixing well.
  • 4 Carefully spoon into the basin over the cherries, and press down firmly to compress the crumbs and jelly.
  • 5 Cover and set in the fridge for 3-4 hours, then turn out onto serving platter. (You may need to dip the bowl in hot water for 30 seconds to loosen, being careful not to wet the pudding).

Hints

This makes a fantastic last minute Christmas pudding, or simple and impressive dessert. It is delicious served with custard or brandy sauce. You may want to replace 2 tbsp of boiling water with 2 tbsp brandy or port.
