Bush Tucker Bake Off.

#Indigenousbushfood ingredients give #Christmaspuddings an authentically #Aussie twist. Quandong Christmas pudding is made from the famous #Australiannativepeach.

The quandong — a #fruit that has been a #traditional staple for thousands of years for #Aboriginalpeople — is giving the traditional Christmas pudding an authentically Australian twist this year on our table this #Christmas.

Christmas is the perfect time for a steamed fruit pudding, and it is great to eat at any time of the day! I hope this recipe puts a smile on your face like it did mine.

The Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups dried Quandongs, Lilly Pilly, Davidson Plum, Kangaroo Appple.

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 ½ tablespoons sugar

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup self raising flour (sifted)

  • A pinch of salt bush

  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice and Cinnamon Myrtle.

The Method:

  • Place mixed fruit, butter, sugar and milk all in a saucepan and bring to the boil (until butter is melted)

  • Add baking soda and wait until it rises then take off the head

  • Then add self-raising flour, salt and mixed spice and mix well

  • Once mixed, place into a greased ceramic bowl

  • Cover with some grease proof paper and tie with a string

  • Fill a pot with hot water just below the string line, then steam in the pot for 2 hours

  • Simply serve with some pouring cream and a hot tea or coffee.
