Christmas (or Plum) Pudding is invariably the traditional end to a Christmas dinner. However, today’s Christmas pudding is nothing like the original 14th century offering which was more like a soup and was made of meat (usually beef or mutton) along with a selection of fruits and spices.

Fortunately things are about to change, as our favourite fruit pudding has been overtaken by less traditional deserts. Market research company Kantar have revealed that sponge puddings and crumble are now taking centre stage with everyone’s favourite accompaniment, Custard, leading the way.
