10 Fruity Cakes and Puddings

Fruit-based puddings are popular around Christmas time. Although Christmas pudding is popular, there is more to life than traditional fruitcake, and here we present a number of options. Many of the recipes below are gluten-free and reduced-sugar, and all of them are highly fruity! Dried fruits are particularly popular at this time of year: apricots, vine fruit, prunes, dried berries and much more!


1. Gluten Free Christmas Pudding

This easy-to-make Christmas pudding combines mixed vine fruit, figs, apricots, prunes and citrus peel in a traditional manner, but one that is suitable for those on a gluten-free diet. We sweetened this pudding with Xylitol, though you can easily switch to coconut sugar, molasses or syrup for a great alternative to refined cane sugar.


2. Christmas Bauble Cake

This Christmas cake is made using apricots and mixed vine fruit, together with candied citrus peel. With spelt flour, home-made marzipan, coconut oil and coconut syrup.


3. Gluten Free Purple Berry Compote - Recipe

If you cannot obtain fresh berries at this time of year, you can use freeze-dried mixed berries in this fruit compote: they are bursting with flavour and taste exactly the same as the fresh ones! Gluten-free and low-GI.

Classic Christmas cake made to a gluten free recipe, this recipe uses cranberries and mixed vine fruit. Covered in a sugar-free marzipan coating.
