Stir-Up Sunday has been and gone – did you mix up a nice traditional Christmas pudding? No worries: Blackberry Cottage has a free-from pud that ticks a lot of boxes.
Free from dairy, eggs, gluten, nut and soya and with no added refined sugar, the Christmas puddings (£8 and £15) are handmade using brandy-steeped fruit and festive spices.
You may have heard of Blackberry Cottage thanks to founder Kate Saunders's cookbook Blackberry Cottage: Cakes with Secret Ingredients from Aubergine to Zucchini, which is exactly what it says it is: recipes for desserts sneakily hiding veg. That's one January diet worth considering.
