Christmas Pudding is an odd thing, personally I don’t like it. Its too heavy and rich. I do however like the flavours that are present in the pudding so when we were watching some cookery show on saturday and they made these cupcakes I thought it would be a great way to use some left overs.

1 Egg

75ml Milk

30g Salted Butter

2 Tbsp Sheery

125g Left over Christmas Pudding

125g Plain Flour

1 Tbsp Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp Mixed Spice

75g Caster Sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350f/170c and line a muffin pan with 6 paper liners

2. Whisk the egg in a bowl. Add the melted butter, milk, sherry, and pudding


3. Sieve the dry ingredients into another bowl and then add the sugar and mix together. Make a well and add the wet ingredients

4. With a rubber spatula gently fold together until a soft batter forms


5. Fill 6 cupcake liners with the batter and the bake 20-25 minutes


For the frosting you could go with anything you fancied but I followed the original suggestion and made a simple sherry buttercream, very christmasy 


125g Icing Sugar

50g Salted Butter

1-2 Tbsp Sweet Sherry


1. Mix together the sugar and the butter and then add the sherry so you get the right consistency 




  1. And they tasted brilliant! Great Christmas food

  2. I don’t even know what Christmas pudding is!
