Brandy butter and custard are the condiments that save British christmas desserts. Without them it would be all dried fruit and stodge. But brandy butter (and brandy generally) makes everything taste better and more christmassy. But what to do with the remains of the jar when the christmas pudding is gone?
Make festive porridge.
Make up some porridge in your favourite manner, top with sliced banana, raisins, cinnamon and brandy butter, and it’s christmas all over again.
