  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup candied pineapple
  • 1 cup candied mixed peel
  • 1/2 cup halved candied red cherries
  • 1/2 cup halved candied green cherries
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup chopped pecan toasted
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds toasted
  • chocolate orange sauce

Method

Line 6- to 8-cup (1.5 to 2 L) pudding mould or 9- x 5-inch (2 L) loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving enough overhang to cover top; set aside.

In large microwaveable bowl, combine pineapple, red and green cherries, raisins and brandy; microwave at High for 2 minutes, stirring twice. Let cool completely. (Or cover and soak at room temperature for 8 hours or overnight.)

Soften ice cream in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Stir pecans and almonds into fruit mixture; stir in ice cream. Pack into prepared mould, smoothing top. Cover with overhang and freeze until solid, about 12 hours. (Make-ahead: Overwrap with heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 5 days.)

To serve, let pudding stand in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Using overhang, remove from pan. Dip sharp knife in hot water and wipe dry; slice pudding. Serve with sauce.
