It's uhhhh *checks notes*... Plum Pudding Day?

So, today is plum pudding day and I'm not going to pretend like I know what plum pudding is. While I may have never heard of plum pudding before, I know this much... it does not look appetizing to me and this is the most flattering picture I could find.

Looks like it's an British/Irish treat that people eat around Christmas, which is over 10 months away. Who decided today of all days would be the day for plum pudding? Have you ever had plum pudding? Is it better than it looks? Should I give it a try as soon as possible or avoid it like the plague?

Dunno... but those holly berries are extremely poisonous.

I'm not a fan of black pudding or baked beans for breakfast, either.

Love plum pudding.  It's awesome and can be quite boozy too.

What's the flavor like? Anything more common that it tastes somewhat similar to? 

 

I've had sticky toffee pudding before if it's similar to that.

ooh I'd rather have black pudding... I'm more into savory than sweet. Still I'm curious about this plum pudding; it definitely does not look like what I expected.

No, what you posted is plum pudding. Black pudding is TOTALLY  a different thing....not sure you wanna know. LOL

Here's a recipe for traditional plum (also called Christmas) pudding.

While it has fruits like a fruitcake, it's nothing like it. Plus it has a lot of booze in it, and it's often served with a brandy sauce. 

 

I can't describe what it tastes like -- it's like a boozy, dense cake.  I love it.

Looks like meat wrapped in electrical tape!!! Smiley Surprised

 

As for the dessert, I might have to try some plum pudding then. Is it typically served with a sauce?
