The frozen Christmas pudding I usually make has an ice cream base. This one is a little bit different, it still has decadent brandy soaked fruit, but also has lashings of cream, some white chocolate and meringue. I’ve already made a boiled pudding for this year, but think I might give this one a go next year.
The easy way to make a Frozen Christmas Pudding is just to soak fruit in brandy and stir it through softened bought ice cream and then re-freeze it. While this recipe does use bought ice cream it takes the frozen pudding concept a bit further by separating the three colors in neopolitan ice cream adding cake and Marsala soaked fruit which turns it into a Cassata Christmas Pudding. Now I’ve found it in Mum’s collection I’m thinking of making it myself this Christmas.
Although Mum always made a hot Christmas Pudding I found this recipe for a frozen pudding in her collection and while it’s similar to my version it has some different ingredients and I’m sure would taste great.
While Mum always made a traditional hot Christmas Pudding I started making frozen ones back in the eighties. This is the first one I made and I still think it’s a great recipe as it shows clearly how to line the bowl and successfully cover the pudding with chocolate.
