THINKING THURSDAY – (enjoy learning something new!)

Learn a little about celebrating in a British fashion:

PLUM PUDDING

7 slices of thin wholemeal bread, the crusts removed and then quartered
2 tblsp of honey
4-5 tblsp of almond slivers
1 and 1/4 C of milk
*plum sauce

*For the plum sauce-

5 medium sized, ripe plums, stoned and chopped
4 tblsp of honey
1/2 tsp crushed red chillies

How to-

  1. Mix together all the ingredients for plum sauce in a small saucepan and place over low heat. Stir well, cover and cook till the juices flow and the fruit softens (about 10-11 minutes). Stir frequently. Keep aside to cool.
  2. Pre heat the oven at 350 degrees.
  3. Mix together the milk and honey.
  4. Dip 1/3 of the pieces of bread and arrange at the bottom of a shallow baking dish. Top this with 1/3 of the plum sauce, followed by 1/3 of the almond slivers.
  5. Repeat step 4 till all the bread, plum sauce and almonds have been used up. Pour in any remaining milk.
  6. Place the dish in the center of the oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes or till hot and bubbly.
  7. Serve warm or chilled with some cream.

Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
