Here's steps 1 and 2 of this Easy Ice Cream Christmas Pudding

For this part of the recipe, you'll require:

  • Equipment: Non-stick Bundt mold
  • Raisins
  • Glace Cherries
  • Rum
  • Sweet Sherry
  • Ice Cream

  • Step 1: Soak Fruit

    Here's the mixture of sultanas, raisins and currants as well as glace cherries.

    A week before making the pudding, soak the dried fruit. You want to have it full and plump, filled with delicious liqueur.

    Step 2: Make the Pudding

    Firstly, remove the ice cream from the freezer and let it soften for at least 1/2 hour. I usually leave it for an hour to soften so that it is quite melted when mixed with the fruit.

    Here's what you need for this step:
    • A large mixing bowl
    • Bunt mold
    • Dried fruit soaked and plump
    • Softened ice cream

    Tip into the mixing bowl the dried fruit and the melted ice cream. Combine well.

    When well combined, the mixture will look like a thick slurry, like this.

    Place the bundt mold onto a firm plate. In this image, you'll see I've used a tray.

    Pour the mixture into the mold.

    Freeze overnight and place the mold in the back of the freezer where it is coldest.

    Just like any Christmas pudding, for the pudding to taste rich and full-flavored, the fruit will need to be soaked for as long as possible. I recommend a week's soak but at a very minimum 24 hours.

    Check on it every couple of days to see if it needs a further top up of rum or sweet sherry. The sultanas and currants just soak up all the liqueur. The objective is for all the liquid to be all soaked up.
