I've cooked two Christmas puddings over the last two days. We really don't need two Christmas puddings, and I had no intention of cooking more than one.
Unfortunately I have a cold, and when I started on the first one yesterday my brain clearly wasn't functioning very well. It was only after the pudding had been steaming for about three hours that I realised I'd missed out one ingredient; the soft brown sugar. So I've spent today steaming a second pudding, and the first one has turned into high class bird food. Hopefully the birds won't mind the missing sugar, and hopefully I remembered all the ingredients the second time around.
