Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, mix together chopped dried fruits, citrus peel, orange zest and juice, milk and brandy/whiskey and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Melt the butter in the microwave or on the stove and let cool slightly. Pour butter over the dried fruit mixture and add the breadcrumbs, eggs, brown sugar and the flour mixture, mix to combine.
  2. Grease the inside of your Tuffsteel 2lt Pudding Steamer and pour in the mixture. Place the lid onto the pudding steamer, align the circles and turn to lock. Place filled pudding steamer into a large stockpot and fill the stockpot halfway with boiling water (ensure that water level does not reach opening of pudding steamer). Place a lid onto the stockpot and simmer on low for 4 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the pudding comes out clean.
  3. Once cooked, lift the pudding steamer out of the stockpot by the handle located on the lid (wear oven mitts to protect your hands). To serve, unfasten the lid of your pudding steamer and carefully turn the pudding out onto a serving plate. Top pudding with custard, icing sugar, brandy butter or ice cream.
