What You Need: 

Christmas pudding fritters

300g Christmas pudding – you can make this yourself or buy one in

1/2 pint orange juice


What You Do: 

Peel the orange and cut as thin as possible, squeeze the juice, add the cinnamon, cranberries and sugar to a thick based pan put on a medium heat until reduced and thick. Remove the cinnamon and leave to cool.

In a bowl, add the double cream and icing sugar – whisk until soft peaks, add as much brandy as required and place to one side.

Crumble the Christmas pudding in to a bowl, then roll into small balls.

For the batter – whisk together the flour, sugar and water leave for 5 minutes to rest.

Dip the pudding balls into the batter and fry at 180c, don’t overload the fryer – just 5 or 6 at a time.

Drain the fritters on to kitchen roll, serve and add a spoon of brandy cream and orange compote.
