There is no party which ends without a dessert, so how can a Christmas Party miss it, let’s see today a special treat for your Christmas party. Christmas Sticky Date Pudding is a one such specially made dessert for the celebration, more traditional families in the west have a different take on the Christmas pudding and it is considered holy with each member of family contributing in the making of the pudding using specific number of ingredients. I however make a pudding only for party purpose and just love to celebrate each festival. Anyhow, whichever way the Christmas puddings are made, it is an absolute delight to have it on Christmas day.
