    Christmas pudd. Lowcarb Of course !

    Post by Eddie on Fri Sep 12 2014, 23:16


    Someone mentioned Christmas pudding the other day.

    Ingredients:
    100 grams ground almond flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 large eggs
    1 tablespoon of melted butter
    2 tablespoons of double cream
    100 grams of lowcarb thawed frozen fruits. Blueberries, blackcurrants and strawberries.
    60 grams of 90-95% cocoa dark chocolate
    Two tea spoons of cocoa powder
    One large shot of brandy
    A handful of almond flakes and broken walnuts
    Extra thick cream

    Method:
    Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
    Melt the butter, I use a Pyrex jug, add the eggs, cream, and fruit. Add the dry ingredients and mix. Pour into a medium size Pyrex mixing bowl. Microwave in a 700watt for 5 minutes. Turn out upside-down onto five layers of kitchen paper on a flat plate. Zap in micro-wave for a further two minutes. Melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl standing in a saucepan of boiling water. Pour over pudding and serve with a scoop of extra thick cream. Serves four.

    Think it was all the talk about Sherry Trifle and Christmas Cake ....... on the 'What foods do you lust after thread'

    Anyway us low carbers are always prepared for good tasting low carb food any time of the year and Christmas is only 104 days away.

    Have you tried this recipe?
    Have you bought any Christmas cards or presents yet ?

    I did get a few from one of the charity shops last January ......well they were half price and I thought why not !

    All the best Jan
