From Delia Smith's Christmas Cookbook. This recipe makes one large pudding in a 2-pint basin (ceramic bowl). If you want two smaller puddings, use two 1-pint basins, but give them the same steaming time. You will need two days to make it plus 6-8 weeks for maturing time, so best to make it in late October/early November. Don't forget to tick everything off as you add it so that you don't forget anything. Cooking time includes sitting overnight plus steaming time.
