Plum Pudding (Vegan)

serves 4 to 6

125 g ground flax-seed

Mix and let stand at room temperature overnight

250 ml water

400 ml bread crumbs

cream together

100 g brown sugar

200 g olive oil

Strain flax albumen. Discard the flax husks and pour the albumen into the breadcrumb mixture.

1 ml cloves

Stir in

5 ml cinnamon

3 ml nutmeg

5 ml salt

300 g finely chopped dried figs and prunes

Stir in

100 g finely chopped citron

250 g candied cherries

Thoroughly grease a pudding-mold. Arrange decorative patterns in the mold from candied angelica, candied citrus peels, and other fruits. Pack the pudding in on top of the decorations, being careful not to dislodge them. (It is also theoretically possible to candy rutabaga slices, which will allow us to cut holly-leave shapes out of the slices. I'll let you know how that goes if I get enough energy to try) Cover and steam
