  • Then the next day, grease a large (approx. 1 litre) heatproof pudding bowl with some vegan butter, and line the base of the bowl with a circle of greaseproof paper to ensure the pudding comes out okay once it's cooked.
  • Place the vegan mincemeat into a large mixing bowl and stir in the coconut sugar, chopped pecans, vegan butter and GF breadcrumbs. Make sure to combine all the ingredients well. Then sift in the flour and baking powder and slowly fold into the mixture.
  • Next, spoon the mixture into the pudding bowl, leaving a 2-3cm gap at the top. Cover the mixture with some more greaseproof paper, then add a sheet of tinfoil over the top of the bowl and tie it tightly with some cook's string.
  • Finally, place an upturned ramekin in the bottom of the slow cooker or saucepan, and sit the pudding bowl on top. Pour some boiling water inside the cooker/saucepan until it reached about half way up the pudding bowl. Cover and simmer on a low heat for around 5 hours, making sure to top up the water whenever necessary. Lift the pudding out and leave it to cool slightly before removing the foil to avoid any steam burns on your skin.


Best enjoyed hot, served with some coconut custard!
