The traditional Christmas pudding is a dessert that originated in England in the 14th century.
It is typically made with a mixture of dried fruits, spices, breadcrumbs, suet, and eggs.
The pudding is often flavored with brandy or other spirits and is steamed for several hours before serving.
It is traditionally served with a brandy or rum sauce and sometimes topped with holly or other festive decorations.
The pudding is often associated with Christmas in the UK and other Commonwealth countries.
In some families, it is a tradition to make the pudding several weeks or even months before Christmas to allow the flavors to develop.
Despite its name, the traditional Christmas pudding is more like a fruitcake than a pudding in the American sense of the word.
