Total Time 8 hours


  • 1 1/4 cup currants
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup prunes
  • 3/4 cup sherry
  • 2/3 cup plain flour
  • 2 1/3 cups breadcrumbs
  • 14 tablespoons grated vegetable shortening ( or 1 block of Copha if in aus)
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and grated
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • I processed the dry fruits to chop lightly (but that is personal preference), then add to a bowl with the sherry.
  • Leave for approx. 1 week covered in cling wrap (on the bench or in the fridge).
  • After leaving for a week to sit then add the rest of your ingredients to a large bowl and mix well.
  • Sit the fruit mix in the bowl on a saucepan on the stove top to warm. Add the fruit mix to the other ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour into your pudding bowl, I used a silicone one lightly sprayed with spray and cook and put pudding bowl lid on. Put 2/3 cup of water in slow cooker and put lid on slow cooker with no tea towel needed.
  • Cook for 5 hours on low take out and wrap gently in a tea towel.
  • Place back into pudding bowl when preparing to serve for the last 3 hours of cooking repeating same cooking process.
