Stir-Up Sunday cometh, but if you're challenged in the baking department LillyPuds has vegan and Fairtrade Christmas puddings to grace your dining table fuss-free.
The vegan and gluten-free pudding (£12.49 for 454g – three to four servings) contains a minimum of 50 per cent fruit and just five per cent sugar.
If you don't mind eggs or gluten, there's also the vegetarian-friendly LillyPuds Fairtrade Traditional Christmas Pudding (454g/£12.95 or 2 x 120g/£8.75) which is also one-half fruit, including Fairtrade sultanas and raisins, and four per cent sugar.
Both puddings also contain palm oil which LillyPuds says is responsibly sourced and Essex-brewed Chockwork Orange beer from Brentwood Brewery which – fun fact – is the 'official beer of the book A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess'. The puds are also mixed in small batches and steamed in the traditional way, says LillyPuds.
