date and apricot pudding

Date & Apricot  Pudding

I found this scrumptious recipe over on House to Home & think I will give it a whirl this Christmas as its a great alternative to your traditional pudding & since I am about the only one in my house that likes Christmas pudding maybe its time to try something a little different


  •  60g (2oz) medium oatmeal
  •  10-12 fresh dates, stoned
  •  20 ready-to-eat dried apricots
  •  8tbsp whisky
  •  250g tub mascarpone cheese
  •  3-4tbsp clear honey


  1. Grill the oatmeal until toasted. Be careful, it browns quickly!
  2. Put the dates and apricots in a pan with 6 tbsp whisky and 6 tbsp water, and simmer over a low heat for 10 mins, stirring every so often.
  3. Mash the mixture roughly with a fork, leaving a few chunks of apricot. Leave to cool.
  4. Beat the mascarpone, the rest of the whisky and 2tbsp honey in a bowl, then mix in the toasted oatmeal.
  5. Spoon some of the fruit, then the mascarpone mixture, into 4 serving glasses, then repeat the layers.
  6. Chill, but bring back to room temperature 15 mins before serving.
  7. Drizzle with more honey and serve.
