This is best made well in advance and just heated through on Christmas Day in a microwave

8oz Brown Sugar
½ tps Nutmeg
½ tps Mixed Spice
Rind and Juice Lemon
Sherry, Milk and 2 Eggs


Mix all ingredients together.
Cover with greaseproof paper and an old tea towel tied with string both around and across the basin so that it can easily be moved from the saucepan.

Leave to cool.

Keep stored in a cool dry place. This can be heated through on Christmas Day in a microwave.
