Well, hellooooo, did you all have a good Christmas Day?
As you read this post, I'm sure the detritus of Christmas is all around; scrumpled, hurriedly unwrapped paper decorating the living room like confetti, only half of the sparkly lights on the tree still flashing as its quite frankly too much effort to replace the batteries, a discarded tin of Roses, the unwanted coffee creams forlornly piled at the bottom and, no doubt, rather a lot of leftovers.
Here's where I can help. Especially if you have any leftover Christmas Pudding.
Christmas Pudding Sundae
200g leftover Christmas Pud
100g cranberry sauce
2 tbsp mulled wine
2 tsp caster sugar
2 tbsps. toasted flaked almonds
8 scoops ice cream (I used Carte D'Or Vanilla)
1. Warm through the Christmas Pudding as per the original pudding instructions and spoon between four sundae glasses or pudding bowls
2. Mix the cranberry sauce with the mulled wine and sugar in a small pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for a couple of minutes, stirring to combine
3. Drizzle the cranberry sauce over the Christmas puddings, add a scoop of ice cream and sprinkle with the almonds
4. Serve immediately
With thanks to Carte D'Or
