Charlesworth’s Jolly Little Puddin’ Muffins

September 17, 2018

These delicious muffins are a Christmas favourite, easy to prepare and very easy to eat (too easy!). A good alternative to a full-sized Christmas pudding if you're a little shorter on time. Absolutely gorgeous served warm with fresh cream.

Other Ingredients Required

125 ml (1/2 cup) Brandy, heated

300 ml Cream

100 g Butter, chopped

1 1/2 cups Brown sugar

2 tbsp Brandy

2 tbsp Golden syrup



1Empty the bag of premixed Charlesworth dried fruits (and the Dried Pineapple, if desired) into a heatproof bowl. Heat brandy in a saucepan until hot (do not boil). Pour over fruit, cover and leave to soak for 6 hours, or overnight if preferred.

2After soaking the fruit, use an electric mixer to beat the butter and golden syrup until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour, nutmeg and cinnamon over fruit. Add breadcrumbs, butter mixture and Slivered Almonds. Mix well.

3Liberally grease a 12-cup muffin pan. Spoon mixture equally into muffin holes.

4Bake in 160C oven for 35 - 40 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool for 5 minutes then turn onto a wire rack (run a knife around the edge of each muffin hole to help release them). Store in fridge until required. Can be frozen and thawed on the day of use. Reheat in microwave following manufacturer's instructions.
