Finding ways to use up all the leftover turkey is not too hard, but what to do with leftover Christmas pudding ? Well, how about trying out Carte D'Or's recipe for Christmas Pudding Sundaes ? They sent us through a kit with all the ingredients and I'll admit, I was slightly dubious because it sounded like it would be just a bit too sickly, but it's actually really lovely and much easier to digest than a big bowl of Christmas pudding and custard after all that festive overeating !
Carte D'Or Christmas Pudding Sundaeingredients :
8 scoops of Carte D'Or Vanilla Ice Cream (200g/400ml)
200g Christmas Pudding
100g cranberry sauce
2 tbsp mulled wine
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp flaked almonds, toasted
1 tbsp chocolate shavings
Crumble the Christmas Pudding into a small pan. Place on a low heat and warm through. Or just heat it up in the microwave.
Mix the cranberry sauce, mulled wine and sugar in a separate pan. Bring to the boil and stir for two minutes to combine.
Spoon half of the warmed Christmas pudding between four tall sundae glasses.
Drizzle a spoonful of hot cranberry sauce over the warmed Christmas Pudding and top with a scoop of Carte D’Or Vanilla Ice Cream.
Repeat the layers with the remaining warm Christmas pudding and hot cranberry sauce and finish with a scoop of Carte D’Or Vanilla Ice Cream in each sundae glass.
Sprinkle with toasted flaked almonds and chocolate shavings. Serve immediately.
How's that for a tasty twist on the traditional Christmas dessert ?
Happy Christmas !
