The Ultimate Reduced Calorie Christmas Pud Fix!

For the quickest low-cal Christmas pudding known to man and woman, you've got to try the Lo-Dough mug cake version. Full of all the original's flavour, dense with fruit and nuts and just crying out for a bit of brandy-custard! We've kept the carbs down by combining Lo-Dough and sweetener, so the only sugars left in this dessert are coming from the fruit. 

When we say quick, we mean it - from start to finish, this one could be yours in under ten minutes!

Of course - setting fire to it is an optional extra! 

Low Cal Christmas


Serves 2
  • 1 piece of Lo-Dough, blitzed to fine crumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 70g mixed dried fruit
  • 20g mixed nuts
  • 2 teaspoons of sweetener
  • The zest of a clementine
  • 1 teaspoon of mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of gravy browning (for colour)

  1. Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and combine thorouoghly.
  2. Add to a wide mug, smoothing off the top (to turn it out onto a flattish base later..).
  3. Cook in a microwave for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes take out and check by pressing the bottom of the mug cake. It should feel just cooked, with a little bounce. If still a little too moist in the middle, cook for a further minute.
  4. Take out and leave to stand in the mug for a further minute before turning out onto a plate.
  5. Serve as desired. If pouring over flamed brandy, take care. It would be delicious with cream or a brandy custard.
