Get ready for stir up Sunday with one of our ten tasty Christmas pudding recipes

There is nothing more comforting and traditional than making your very own Christmas cake and Christmas puddings and they don’t have to be that complicated at all as we show you in this collection of ten Christmas pudding recipes put together by Claire who blogs at Foodie Quine.

Over to Claire…

Stir up Sunday is fast approaching (22nd November 2015). I must admit to never having heard of it until I started blogging and even then assumed it was something developed by supermarket PR departments! However it dates back to Victorian times and falls on the last Sunday before advent. Following the Sunday Service the family would leave church to go home and teach the children how to stir up the ingredients for the Christmas Pudding. Everyone gets a turn to mix, and an opportunity to make a wish. Stirring should be done East to West in honour of the Three Wise Men who came to visit baby Jesus. If you fancy following in tradition and making your own Christmas Pudding this year here are 10 fab recipes to inspire you.

  • Hijacked by Twins goes boozy with her wee dram Christmas pudding which includes a generous measure of whisky and a serving suggestion of lashings of whisky cream. Hic!
  • Penelope’s Pantry shares a family recipe for a traditional Christmas pudding. You can’t beat a passed down recipe in “old money”.
  • Made in the slow cooker Something Sweet Something Savoury puts a modern twist on figgy pudding with her cherry, pecan and ginger pudding
  • Freycob’s recipe taken from her mother’s 1958 Household Encyclopaedia makes six puddings which should see you well into the new year!
  • Plenty of innuendo from Keep Calm and Fanny On who shares how to make a Christmas pudding in the inimitable style of Fanny Craddock
  • What Kate Baked shares her recipe for four mini puds along with seven top tips for Stir up Sunday success.
  • Dom at Belleau Kitchen takes Christmas Pudding to a whole new level with his impressive Christmas pudding bundt with Pimm’s Winter
  • Rachel at A Wee Pinch of Sugar shares a pudding recipe from renowned Chef Neil Forbes of Edinburgh’s Cafe St Honore.
  • Sew White shares her first ever attempt at Christmas pudding which uses Brandy and Stout to soak the fruit in.
  • Lastly is my own 7 cup Christmas pudding. This is the recipe that my Mum has always made. It’s really quick and easy to make, nice and light and most suitable for an all year round steamed pud, not just at Christmas.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
