Bake a Traditional Christmas Pudding with a Lucky Silver Thruppence Inside
Christmas Plum Pudding is the the traditional end to the British Christmas dinner. During Victorian times, puddings in wealthy households were often cooked in fancy molds (like jelly ones). These were often in the shapes of towers or castles. The “common folk” just had puddings in the shape of balls. If the pudding was a bit heavy, they were called cannonballs!
Putting a silver coin in the pudding is another age-old custom that is said to bring luck to the person who finds it. In the UK the coin traditionally used was a small silver coin, like this authentic, period silver thruppence.
