Stir-up Sunday recipes

Get ahead with your Christmas baking with some of our wonderfully festive Stir-up Sunday recipes. Traditionally falling on the last Sunday before Advent, as the name suggests, Stir-up Sunday involves the stirring together of ingredients which will later feature in the iconic Christmas pudding.

If, like us, you relish the tradition of making your own Christmas pudding (or Christmas cake!) rather than buying from the shops, take some inspiration from our Stir-up Sunday recipes.
