My Granny would always serve a traditional homemade pudding on Christmas day, within the fruity, rich folds of which there would be hidden a well-worn thrupenny bit. With a market value of a pound for whichever lucky person discovered it in their slice hopefully without breaking any teeth , it was the subject of much excitement amongst the children of our family, but never enough to convince me to accept a whole slice of this strange, slightly stodgy dessert. Later in the day, the Christmas cake would come out. Mince pies were a slightly different matter. I love the sweet, buttery crust and enjoy making my own, filling the little pockets of pastry with spoons of sticky mincemeat, baking them til crisp then showering in a snowfall of icing sugar.
