Ingredients

  • 100 g / 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g / 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 50 g / 1/4 cup blueberries, frozen
  • 50 g / 1/4 cup cherries frozen
  • 10 g small handful crushed walnuts
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tbsp double heavy cream
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cacao powder unsweetened
  • 2 tbsp powdered sweetener or more to taste
  • 2 tsp mixed spice pumpkin spice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • orange zest from 1/2 orange
  • optional: glug of brandy
  • double heavy cream, to serve

Instructions

  • Blitz the carrot in a food processor or grate them. Add the fruit (I used frozen blueberries and cherries) and chop. Your chopped carrots and fruit combined should fill 1 US measuring cup.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Melt the butter.
  • Add the melted butter and all remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir until combined. If you wish, add a glug of Brandy. Adjust sweetener if needed.
  • Grease a pyrex glass bowl with butter and fill in the Christmas pudding batter. Microwave at 700W for 6 minutes.
  • Turn out upside down onto a plate and serve with thick cream.

Notes

I have tried to keep this pudding as low carb as possible and avoided dried fruit, which arguably are the essence of a Christmas pudding. If you do wish to add dried fruit because it's Christmas and all that, I'd recommend prunes over sultanas - they are much lower in carbs.
