So I know this is a little late in the game but I am currently eating the last of our Christmas food, the ice cream Christmas pudding.  In my defence we were away for Christmas and for some reason I decided to do All my usual Christmas baking.  Which we then weren’t here to eat.  We’ve only Just finished the gingerbread and minced tarts. Assuming KCAEIC is still here when December rolls around I’ll do a proper post (I said I’d give it a year)

But this is the end result. And it’s the easiest recipe ever.  Other ice cream Christmas pudding recipes will go on about you need this much dried fruit and this much cream.  Not this one.  

Mix ice cream and Christmas pudding together in a large bowl.  An a slosh or two of brandy to the pudding as you mix it (optional). Don’t add to much or your mix won’t freeze.

Put pudding and ice cream mix into a pudding shaped bowl lined with cling film and put in freezer to firm up.

To serve flip it onto a plate and carefully pull off cling wrap.  

And That’s it.  Easy, delicious and perfect for our hot summers down south in Australia.  Merry very belated Christmas

Notes

I like to use a matured Christmas Pudding for this recipe but that’s personal preference, un matured will work to.  
The brandy is optional, you can leave it out if you prefer.
If using the brandy do not add more than a couple of shots in total or the ice cream won’t freeze properly.
Remember it will start to melt a soon as you take it out of the freezer so don’t serve until the last minute.
