As Chief Executive of Silver Screen Suppers I have made an executive decision. No newsletter this month and therefore no new recipe of the month. So Basil’s curry is up for another month – yipee! Life is just too crazy in December with birthdays, Christmas, end of year work targets etc. etc. etc.
This means that the recipe I was going to send out for this fab Christmas pudding will be in my pocket for this time next year. I have never in my entire life been so ahead of the game. Of course, if you would like the recipe – as with all the recipes I post about – don’t hesitate to email me via the contact page.
Of all the film star cookbooks I own, Corinne’s has the best title. It is a lovely little book, and has lots of great recipes including a Greta Garbo one for Swedish Potatoes which I really want to try. Gotta get me some Crème de Bananes whatever that might be.
When I was thinking about what to suggest for December’s recipe of the month I found this amongst Corinne’s recipes. I don’t know much about Edna – her surname was Bakewell aptly enough though, and she lived in Rancho Santa Fe, California. Her pudding is VERY good.
It’s a light steamed pudding with no heavy dried fruit within and no booze either. A sponge pudding spiced up with cherry jam and walnuts. It’s a great alternative pudding to make for the festive season, highly recommended. I REALLY liked it. I used a whole jar of Tiptree jam.
I made it when Michelle and Tony came for din dins to test it. Too early for holly so I popped on some mistletoe (it’s plastic) some kissing ensued of course.
This is a Christmas pudding for those people who say “I don’t like Christmas pudding”. You can always pull the wool over their eyes by calling it a Cherry and Walnut Steamed Pudding. Here’s the kind of Christmas I am planning…
Thanks Edna and Corinne – your pud is delicious. Wishing all my readers a FANTASTIC Christmas if I don’t post again before it all kicks off. Hope all you ladies get your legs kissed! And hope all you gents have some fun kissing ladies’ legs.
