Stir Up Sunday is traditionally the day when Christmas puddings should be made, in order to give them enough time to mature before Christmas. It’s a day to bring the whole family together, as it is tradition on Stir-Up Sunday for every family member to take it in turns to stir the Christmas pudding mixture and make a wish. A sixpence is traditionally added to the mixture and cooked in the pudding – as it is said to bring luck and wealth to whoever finds the coin on their plate on Christmas day.
And I was lucky enough to win one of 2015 sixpence from the royal mint this year.
To make our Christmas pudding I used Nigella's ultimate Christmas pudding recipee.
