Favorite Diabetic Recipe - No Added Sugar Christmas Pudding

from Wendy Meadon, UK

[Check out this selection of recipes for the holiday season as well.. Carol Ann].

I have the following recipe for No Added Sugar Christmas Pudding which my family has used for many years now. My family comprises diet and tablet controlled diabetics and insulin injecting members.

I have given this recipe out to other diabetics and it has proved to be very popular. Many non-diabetics prefer it to the sticky, stodgy traditional recipe with lots of treacle etc.
