Boy do I love Christmas time! It’s baking heaven – from Zimtsterne and Vanillekipferl to Stollen and Florentines, I really love indulging in traditional Christmas treats. And, ever since I’ve moved to the UK, two new seasonal desserts have found their way into my festive xmas heart: mince pies and the pudding of all puddings: Christmas pudding! This fruit-studded dessert is a real revelation: laced with brandy and most often devoured with brandy butter, it’s just heavenly. Still, I often find that after a huge Christmas dinner, it’s hard to do this dessert any justice, and most often there are more leftovers than intended.
Now, I’ve got the perfect solution for such a typical leftover situation or if you find yourself with an unopened Christmas pudding at the end of the festivities… My Christmas pudding trifle! It’s pretty divine if I may say so myself: laced with an extra double kick of whisky and topped off with vanilla whipped cream, it will make you wish it was Christmas all year round! Enjoy!
