These Thermomix Little Steamed Christmas Puds are perfect for hosting a Christmas dinner party. They're served individually, and can be left steaming for 45 minutes before serving immediately – so make the batter beforehand and simply pop them on 45 minutes before your final course. They make use of our Fruity Pear Mince recipe, and have the addition of dark chocolate for an extra layer of flavor, something your guests will definitely be curious about. Serve with cream or if you're feeing fancy, crème Anglaise.
