How to Serve Christmas Pudding


Christmas pudding is a popular dish in Malta
around the Christmas holidays. Many people
are surprised to find out that it isn't pudding at
all. It is actually a moist, cake-like sweet bread,
filled with nuts, raisins and other dried fruit. There
are many variations on how to make Christmas
pudding and how to serve it.


1. Let the Christmas pudding cool completely on a wire rack before serving. Otherwise the "pudding" will crumble and fall apart.

2. Trim off the ends off the Christmas pudding and set aside. It is usually a bit too dry to serve to guests.

3. Cut the rest of the Christmas pudding into even slices and place on a serving platter.

4. Pour a warm custard sauce over the slices of Christmas pudding.

5. Garnish with some fresh mint leaves for complementing color and some dried cherries for a splash of red.

6. Serve immediately to guests with coffee, eggnog or holiday tea.
