What holiday dessert do you enjoy?
My favourite is Christmas pudding with brandy custard. The pudding has to be really loaded with fruit (raisins, sultanas, glazed cherries and pineapple, candied orange and lemon peel) and soaked for months in alcohol. My nana made the best ones I've ever tasted. She also did a fantastic trifle (layers of sponge cake, custard and jelly -- or jello, I think for my US f*listies) that was also soaked for ages in brandy and rum.
