I tasted the best ever Christmas Pudding in Borough Market before Christmas, but had no time to go back to buy one. Hoping that there are some left. I want to give them as farewell presents to our US-visitors!Astrid Lee - 10 January 2013

Bought one of these from Covent Garden last year- best Xmas pud ever! Not worth making when Sarah does it so well for you!Mandy Carr - 6 December 2010
Our story began with Sandra McLaren,
a brilliant confectioner and award-winning dessert designer, who noticed that not one of her four children would eat the Christmas pudding she served. Glancing around the candlelit table, she realised that barely an adult had touched it either!
Already renowned for her outstanding carrot cake, one day Sandra decided to take on the humble Christmas pudding.
After much experimentation,
she discovered she could cut out all the stodgy suet – and remove a lot of the dense flour. Instead, she added a very generous dollop of butter, some zesty oranges, lemons, prunes and flaked almonds. She drenched it all in fine French Brandy and Guinness Stout, steamed it for eight hours – then then let the pudding mature to perfection for 6 months.
Having won over family and friends,
she took the McLaren’s Christmas pudding further afield. Since 2004, when our story began, Sandra’s pudding has attracted a growing number of Christmas pudding aficionados and convertees.
A best-seller at Borough Market and other Christmas fairs,
that same family recipe is now beloved by people who receive our puddings as gifts worldwide.
Today, it’s Duncan – Sandra’s son – who runs McLaren’s Christmas puddings. Lighter, fluffier, completely delicious, they’re also enjoyed by Sandra’s grandchildren. As well as every adult at the Christmas table.
