“This is a remake of an old family recipe that we have had for Christmas for as long as I can remember. It is a steamed pudding with a sauce that you put over top of it. After finding out that I was gluten intolerant I thought that I would not get to enjoy it anymore, but I am very happy that I was able to recreate the recipe. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as my family does.”
