Easy to store before Christmas, placed it in the pantry until ready to serve.. Easy preparation for serving. The hardest part was getting people to make their choice. Once that was done, cut generous slices, some we put choice of sauce before microwaving and others after microwaving. Added choices of cream if wanted. All served up to the table within 5 minutes. Chocolate pudding was lovely and rich with a beautiful taste and aroma. Sticky date Pudding was a more subtle flavour and appreciated by those who did not want a strong pudding taste. Both the chocolate and the sticky date sauces were a success and any left overs eaten later in the evening.
The choc Christmas pudding has now become my new favourite. The addition of choc gives a very luscious mouthfeel and a wonderful richness to it. You could easily serve as a dessert all year round.
