The thing about traditional Christmas pudding is that it’s an acquired taste, a bit of a ‘Marmite’ food if you prefer. Some of us feel obligated to try some every year because of said traditional status even though rich, dark fruity desserts are not really our thing. If you genuinely love a proper Christmas pud, then excellent. Now is the time to start gathering together your ingredients and here’s a recipe to help you make a start. But if, like me, you’d rather spend your Christmas eating something a bit lighter, then here are a few ideas as well as some Waitrose, Sainsburys and Ocado voucher codes to help you stock up those larders in preparation…
Make Ginger Spiced Pudding For Less With Waitrose Voucher Codes
One of the flavours I traditionally associate with Christmas is sweet spice. And yes it does feature in Xmas pud, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find it in other Christmassy recipes. Use our Waitrose voucher codes to buy your ingredients for Mary Berry’s Ginger Spiced Pudding. This is perfect for those of you who aren’t too keen on dried fruit flavours but still want something dark and rich. Our Waitrose voucher codes not only get you £10 off your first order, but also off your next four deliveries after that (with a minimum spend). So in total Waitrose voucher codes save you a whopping £50 – that’s more than enough time to use Waitrose voucher codes and practice your pudding recipe until it’s perfect.
Make a Delicious Yule Log With Sainburys Promotional Codes
What Christmas would be complete without a delicious Chocolate Yule Log? This tends to play second fiddle to Christmas Pudding but is a perfectly delicious dessert in its own right. Our Sainburys voucher codes can save you money on all things chocolatey if you want to polish your yule log-making skills because with Sainsburys voucher codes you can get £15 off your first shop when you spend £60 or more. With all that Christmas planning coming up, why not use Sainsburys voucher codes to save a bit on those Christmas expenses now?
With Our Promo Codes For Ocado You Can Make Hot Citrus Puddings For Less
Cooking is all about seasonality these days and you can’t get more seasonal than citrus fruit in the winter. The antithesis of Christmas pudding could well be Delia Smith’s Hot Citrus Pudding – polar opposite in flavour but just as warming and comforting at this time of year. Our Ocado voucher codes represent even more superb value when you don’t want to compromise on the quality of your ingredients – with Ocado voucher codes, you can save £20 off your first shop when you spend £80 on more. That’s an astonishing 25% saved with Ocado voucher codes and we think that might do justice to Delia’s recipe.
Don’t feel like you have to be tied to tradition at Christmas time. Pick the flavours you love and go from there. You’ll find a wide range of online recipes to satisfy any sweet tooth, but don’t forget to use Waitrose, Sainsburys and Ocado voucher codes when you stock up or you might miss out on some great recipe savings.
