Serves: (makes 2 puddings)
Preparation time: 15 minutes plus 1 hour or more soaking time
Cooking time: 7 hours plus reheating


Sift the flour and baking powder in to a large bowl. Stir in the spices, breadcrumbs, suet, SPLENDA® Granulated, dried fruits and ground almonds.

Beat together the eggs and milk and stir in to the dry ingredients.

Grease 2 x 700ml basins. Spoon the mixture into the basins to about two thirds the way up and level the surface. Cover the tops with non-stick baking parchment, pleated in the middle to allow room for the pudding to rise slightly and tie round with string or elastic. You may find it useful to put a loop of string under the basin for ease when lifting it out of the hot steamer. Cook in a steamer for 5-7 hours according to the darkness of colour required.

Tip: To reheat steam for 1-2 hours or microwave on high for 4-5 mins or until piping hot.
