Christmas pudding is one of the most luscious treats people prepare in time for Christmas. For everyone who likes to wake and bake, the good news is Christmas pudding can be laced with cannabis. The key ingredient in Christmas pudding is cannabutter, which you can prepare with matching sweet-flavored cannabis strains. Scroll down and get your instructions on how to prepare this delicious desert and have some green magic for the winter holidays.

If you've already mastered your skills with infusing various edibles, a Christmas pudding will be an easy peasy for you. But even if you are not much of a chef, you can still give it a go as it's easy and rewarding. The dessert is ready in about three hours. 

Kitchen Utensils to Use

  • Pudding pan 
  • Steamer or large pan filled with simmering water
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Spoon
  • Aluminum foil
  • String 
  • Saucepan 
  • Whisk 

Ingredients you Need for Christmas Pudding 

  • An egg
  • A cup of milk
  • A cup of flour
  • Melted cannabutter (1 cup)
  • Crushed walnuts and almonds (1 cup each)
  • Golden raisins (1 cup)
  • Breadcrumbs (1 cup)
  • Brown sugar (1 cup)
  • Butter for greasing (1 teaspoon)
  • Brown mixed spice (1 teaspoon)
  • A pinch of cinnamon 

For cannabutter, you can either look for it in a cannabis shop or prepare it yourself in a separate action in the kitchen. If you prepare it yourself, it's important to choose a matching strain that will complement well the taste of the pudding. 

Ingredients for Sauce:

The Christmas pudding is complemented with a sauce. For the sauce, you will need: 

  • 200 ml double cream
  • 100 grams light brown sugar
  • 80 grams of butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For a stronger pudding, you can substitute the regular vanilla with a teaspoon of vanilla or agave-flavored THC syrup

How to Prepare Christmas Pudding with Weed?

  1. Take the mixing bowl and pour in all dry pudding ingredients to combine well. 
  2. Add the mixture into the pudding pan and cover it with multiple layers of aluminum foil. Butter the bottom layer on the side that's facing the pudding. 
  3. Use a string to fasten the foil and put it into a steamer. Steam the pudding on high for 2 hours and 30 minutes, then remove it from the steamer.
  4. Start preparing the sauce. Add butter to a saucepan and set it on a burner at medium heat. Add and mix the double cream, brown sugar, and vanilla when the butter melts. 
  5. Cook the sauce. Whisk the ingredients and make sure the sugar doesn't glue on the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat 3-4 minutes after the mixture starts to bubble.  
  6. Use an inverted serving dish to flip the Christmas pudding, then coat it with your sauce. 
  7. Serve your canna-laced Christmas pudding immediately, or freeze it for dinner with friends later.

What Weed Strains to Use for the Christmas Pudding?

Christmas pudding is a sweet treat so it's good to use a matching sweet-flavor weed strain when you prepare the cannabutter. You can try out strains such as Strawberry Cough and Blueberry or pick something from the chocolate/caramel palette: Chocolate Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Kush, or Caramel Cream. For those who want to get an even more extravagant taste and flavor, the pineapple strains may work just fine. So, you can experiment with Pineapple Express or Pineapple Haze. 

Happy holidays!
