The combination of raisins, sultanas (golden raisins) and glacé (candied) cherries with the rum in this lovely frozen ice cream makes a refreshing change from the traditional hot Christmas pudding. You can mould it in a pudding basin, a cake tin or even in individual glasses. As this pudding is rich, you only need a small serve.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons sultanas
2 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons currants
6 green glace cherries, diced
6 red glace cherries, diced
60ml rum
or 60ml brandy
6 large egg yolks
230g caster sugar
300ml cream, whipped until firm
mixed berries, to serve
1 quantity Raspberry coulis, to serve

Method

  1. Place the sultanas, raisins, currants and glacé cherries in a small bowl. Pour in the rum, mix well and leave to macerate for at least 4 hours, stirring 2–3 times.
  2. Place the egg yolks in a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine the sugar and 125 ml water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Cook for 8 minutes or until the colour turns slightly yellow. When the syrup is ready, a teaspoon of the syrup dipped into cold water will solidify.
  4. Use electric beaters to beat the egg yolks on high speed. Slowly pour the syrup onto the yolks and continue beating until the mixture is white and fluffy and has cooled. This will take at least 6–7 minutes. If some of the syrup solidifies in the mixture, continue beating as the heat of the mixture should melt it.
  5. Stir in the soaked fruits, then fold in the whipped cream. Pour the mixture into one large mould or into individual moulds and freeze for at least 6 hours before serving with mixed berries and a little raspberry coulis.
