Something to do this week. I shall still make 2 big ones as usual - dh will eat it all through January given half a chance, and if we’re not able to be with them I’ll drop one off at dd’s house.
Now just need to see what I need to buy, though I think I’ve got most of what I need, including the ale! The smell when mixing up is gorgeous - so Christmassy - I might well be tempted to play some carols too.🎄
Must check whether my pudding basins will fit in my slow cooker. I’ve always done them in a big pan of simmering water halfway up - bit of a PITA since it’s a good 5 hours, and they need frequent topping up with boiling water.
On the day I just reheat in the microwave though - always fine.
I'll be making mine on stir up Sunday, 22nd November. The smell is lovely , isn't it Wirzend? I hope your basins will fit in the slow cooker - it's so much easier, they do not dry out and there's no steam all over the kitchen. 😁 I made my cake yesterday. Another glorious smell wafting through the kitchen 😁.
