Ingredients (serves 10)

50g dried apricots, chopped
300g dried mixed fruit
100g moist dried figs, chopped
100g glace mixed fruits (pineapple, figs, apricots, cherries), chopped
1/2 cup sweet sherry, dark rum or brandy
150g butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup smooth apple sauce
1/2 cup plain flour, sifted
1 1/4 cups fresh white breadcrumbs
1 1/2 teaspoons mixed spice
1 tablespoon parisienne essence
vanilla custard, to serve


1. Place dried and glace fruits in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Pour over sherry. Microwave, covered, on MEDIUM-LOW (30%) for 10 minutes or until fruit is plump and sherry is almost absorbed. Cool.
2. Using electric beaters, cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add fruit mixture, apple sauce, flour, breadcrumbs and mixed spice. Mix well. Stir in parisienne essence.
3. Lightly grease a 1.5-litre capacity heatproof, microwave-safe pudding basin. Line base with a circle of baking paper. Spoon mixture into basin. Smooth surface. Cover pudding with a double layer baking paper and secure with kitchen string. Elevate basin on an upturned plate in microwave. Microwave on MEDIUM-LOW (30%) for 35 minutes. Stand in basin for 15 minutes. Insert a skewer into centre, to check if pudding is cooked. Turn out. Serve with custard.

To reheat a whole Christmas pudding, line a heatproof, microwave-safe plate with non-stick paper. Invert pudding onto plate. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and place on a microwave-safe rack or upturned saucer. Microwave on MEDIUM-LOW/DEFROST (30%) for 15 to 20 minutes or until pudding feels warm (it will get hotter on standing). Stand for 5 minutes. Serve.
