7 Hats of Christmas: Day 5

The name “Christmas pudding” is first recorded in 1858 in a novel by Anthony Trollope.

Christmas pudding (or plum pudding) is sweet dried-fruit pudding traditionally served as part of Christmas dinner in Britain and other countries to which the tradition has been exported. Therefore this includes United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, and the Caribbean.

What is a Plum Pudding?

Plum pudding is usually made up of nutmeg, raisins, nuts, apples, cinnamon, and dates, along with other ingredients.  In England, traditionally every person in the home holds onto the wooden spoon together to help stir the batter. While they are stirring, they also make a wish!  

Plum pudding is also called plum duff.
