Christmas Pudding made out of leftovers

Its holidays and pretty obvious that there will be enough of leftovers. So this is one such recipe that you need to try during the holidays. Do not be alarmed by the whole leftover concept. This is more like a sweet toffee like dessert which is made out of the leftover puddings.


  • 250g Leftover Christmas pudding, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 litre of good quality vanilla ice cream
  • 297g can of dulche de leche

Like any other pudding recipe, start by preheating the oven to 200 degree Celsius. Now take the leftover pudding and crumble it. Place this crumbled leftover pudding in the baking tray lined with parchment paper. Dust over some brown sugar over it. Throw it in the hot grill so that the sugar caramelizes well. Once you get the feeling that sugar has caramelized well, take the tray outside and let it cool.

Start mixing the ice cream in the caramelized pudding crumbs. Take the molds and start shaping the crumbled pudding in whatever size and shape you want. Cover it with a cling film and then place it in the freezer. This will help in setting the ice cream and the leftover crumbled pudding.

Now take it out. Take a plate and place it upside down. Add some left caramelized sugar. It would serve about 6-8 puddings.
