That Christmas pudding thing started mouths before with rum and storing in the cellar. Heavy, with that icing. But in general I agree with suckadmin, it is not the best food of the world, although it has improved. The best food is in my opinion the Italian, but I was never outside Europe, so I can't judge.

If there was icing on it, it was probably a Christmas cake, not a pudding.

You are right. It was made with rum, glace cherries, currants, spices and brown sugar. And there were always christmas crackers.
But now I am talking about more than fifty years ago.

You will be pleased to hear that we expect to be having a precisely similar cake, home-made, again this year. Oh, with marzipan, too.

Funny.
The English culture was very important for my parents. My father was raised in England, he has finished his study at St Catherine's College, and the English were the liberators of Holland. So, Christmas had to be as English as possible.

I wasn't in England for more than 35 years, but I have still good memory's.

Yorkshire pudding was another important part of my childhood and wasn't difficult at all if you had just made a large beef roast. It's a simple batter of flour and eggs, cooked in the fat.
