300g mixed dried fruit of your choice (use any leftovers you have)
100ml alcohol or orange juice
100g dark brown sugar
75g butter
100g plain flour
60g breadcrumbs
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 egg and one egg yolk
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon, grated
1 green apple grated
1 tablespoon golden syrup


Soak the fruit in the alcohol or juice at least overnight but preferably a few days.

Beat the butter and sugar then add the egg and golden syrup. Sift over all the dry ingredients and then add the breadcrumbs. Add the fruit and apple. Mix well to combine. Spoon into your pudding bowl and cover well with foil tying it down.

Steam for at least 3 hours (place a pudding bowl in a large pot in water and keep topped up to about two thirds). Alternatively, use your slow cooker (about 8 hours). Remove and replace foil tightly before storing in a cool dry place.
