Rae makes this yummy pudding every xmas eve. It works every time and tastes as good as any other pudding made in advance. So, from her to you.....
This is a great recipe, really light but fantastic at soaking up the brandy sauce!
2 cups soft breadcrumbs (some rye and/or multigrain are nice)
1 large or 2 small bananas, mashed
375g mixed dried fruit
1 cup skim milk
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground ginger
Dissolve soda in milk and mix into banana, add everything else and mix thoroughly.
Pour into lightly grease pudding basin, cover and steam for 1-2 hours. This can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for a couple of days, or cooked on Christmas morning. It is ready in 1 hour but will darken if cooked for longer.
