      Yep, tradition in our family. When we were little we all had to stir our wishes into the puddings as mum made them. I have carried that through to my family, so yesterday the girls and I all stirred, and wished, and then licked the bowl. 🙂 As I write now, the smell this morning in my kitchen is very Christmassy.

        We stirred our wishes into the Christmas cake, but we never made puddings. We licked the bowl out too, but also ate a lot of the cake mixture when mum wasn’t looking (or was at least pretending not to see) – I still think it tastes better than the finished cake 🙂 And we weren’t fans of silicone bowl scrapers when they came out – there was hardly anything left to lick after they’d done a once-over…

      Better not come to visit me then – the smell will make you itch worse. 🙂

    I’m betting your house is smelling all Christmasy today, Claudette. We’re making our Christmas puddings and cake this week 🎅

    How exciting! We’ve never used muslin for our puddings – always just left them in the pots with aluminium foil over the top! Always delicious. What does the muslin do?

      Hi Marigold, I boil mine in the cloth – mixture into cloth then into pot for 4 hours. After cooking I hang them up (still in the cloth) so that the smell permeates the whole kitchen (at least for the first couple of days until my nose adjusts and then I can’t smell them).
