  • 175 g butter at room temperature
  • 175 g caster sugar
  • 175 g self-raising flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 0.25 tsp ground cloves
  • 0.25 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 6 tbsp mincemeat either from a jar or homemade


  • Place the softened butter, caster sugar, flour, eggs and spices in a bowl and beat well until smooth.
  • Grease a pudding bowl with butter, then place half of the pudding mixture in the bowl.
  • Spoon on three tablespoons of mincemeat and then marble it in with a knife skewer or toothpick.
  • Place the rest of the pudding mixture on top.
  • Top again with three tablespoons of mincemeat and marble it in again.
  • Cover the top of the pudding basin with foil.
  • Get your slow cooker ready. Note: I used my large 5.7 litre Crockpot for this recipe, as I can get a pudding bowl in there.
    Boil a kettle and pour the boiling water into the slow cooker ceramic pot.
  • Place the pudding basin, covered with foil, into the water.
  • Place the lid back on the slow cooker and cook on high for 2 to 2.5 hours, until the pudding has risen in the bowl and the top centre of it looks firm.
  • Allow to cool, then remove the pudding basin from the slow cooker using oven gloves.
  • Invert the pudding onto a plate. If there is mincemeat in the base of the pot, spoon it over the top of the pudding. Serve warm with custard, brandy butter or cream.
