How to make it

  • Mix together all the ingredients above, down to and including, the whiskey, in a large bowl. Cover and leave for at least 3-4 hours or overnight.
  • Stir the breadcrumbs through the fruit mix. Using an electric blender, mix the flour, eggs,salt and butter together. Add to the fruit mix and stir well. If the mixture seems a little dry add a dessertspoon or two of milk.
  • Put the mixture into a bowl and cover tightly using the lid or a cover made from several layers of greaseproof or waxed paper held in place with string.
  • Place the bowl in a saucepan of water, with the water coming about 2/3rds up the side of the pudding bowl. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat to a bare simmer. Cover the saucepan with a well fitted lid. Simmer like this for about 6 hours. You will probably need to top the water up now and then - keep an eye on it.
  • The cooked pudding will keep for months. When it is needed, steam it again for about 2 hours in the bowl, or turn out of the bowl and reheat in the microwave oven for about 5-10 mins.
  • Serve with sherry or brandy sauce or fresh cream.
