This is a great way to jazz up plain old creamed rice. If you don’t want to use tinned crushed pineapple I don’t see why couldn’t substitute any other fruit fresh fruit or even tinned apricots or peaches.
I usually make a large Christmas pudding weeks in advance, but for some people individual ones made and eaten on the same day work better. This recipe was put out on a handy recipe sheet by Coles so all the ingredients can be sourced from there. It’s cooked in the microwave and only takes 12 minutes – very handy.
I’ve spent the morning preparing the fruit for both my Christmas cake and Christmas pudding. I probably should have made them a few weeks ago, but Christmas seems to have crept up on me this year. Puddings and cakes can still taste great even if you don’t make them weeks and weeks ahead. This recipe is one of those and it’s unusual as it has sago in it. It’s also a good one for those who don’t like their pudding laced with brandy or rum.
