One of my very favourite classics is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and for some reason – when I think about the book, my brain conjures up a memory of Christmas pudding! Perhaps it’s because of that scene when Bob Cratchit’s wife brings out that glorious, flaming pudding for everyone at home or so, I don’t know… Well, pooh, let’s ignore my musings and ramblings for a minute, shall we!
Speaking of pudding, I love it so – especially the rich, alcohol-infused, fruity variety (yes, yes, the Christmas kind!)… There’s a particular supermarket in Al-Khobar (yes, I grew up in Saudi Arabia!) where you can buy it from, during this time of the year – man, I miss my kingdom days! Anyway, I’ve been thinking about the cheery cake a lot and here’s a little something that I came up with. ^.^
P.S. I know I haven’t dedicated a blog post to the winner of my giveaway but for those of you who have no clue, her name’s Prathma Sharma! And I sent her goodies over last week which she has already received and is very happy with. That, in turn, makes me sooper happy.
