Method

2 hours
 
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC. Spray a fairly large, deep ovenproof dish with non-stick spray. Mix the sultanas, apricots and brandy in a glass mixing bowl. Cover and leave for about an hour or overnight. Place the mixed dried fruit, apples, water, butter and sugar in a saucepan and heat. Stir while the mixture comes to the boil and simmer for about 8 minutes. Cool. Arrange the pineapple rings in the bottom of the prepared ovenproof dish. Arrange the halved cherries in the centre of the pineapple crescents. Sift all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Mix the breadcrumbs and sultana mixture (do not drain the liquid). Add the dried fruit mixture and whisked eggs. Stir well. Spoon on top of the pineapple crescents. Cover with aluminium foil, shiny side facing in. Place the dish in an oven pan and fill halfway with water. Bake for 2 hours. Replenish the water if necessary. Meanwhile prepare the brandy butter Whisk the butter in a mixing bowl until smooth. Whisk in small quantities of the icing sugar. Beat in the brandy and nutmeg. Serve with brandy butter. Makes a fairly large pudding. Serves 8-10 people.
