Mr Kipling Christmas Pudding Slices (Sainsbury’s)
Although not a replacement for Christmas Pudding on Christmas day itself, these cake slices certainly looked like a yummy seasonal snack. They smell aromatic, with a touch of brandy and spices, like cinnamon and rich dark sugar.
I think what surprised me was just how moist and fruity each slice was. Not only are the cakes slices packed with raisins etc, but there is a lovely layer of brandy sauce which adds the moisture and flavour. There is a thin drizzle of icing on the top, which doesn’t add too much to the taste, but does look rather pretty. These cake slices are yummy, but very rich! Still it is the season to indulge!
