Our handmade, delicious Christmas Plum Puddings and Fruit Cakes are packed with Australian fruit, Barossa Valley Brandy and flavour. We use free-range eggs and make our own bread crumbs.
The Traditional Christmas Puddings are steamed in Bendigo Pottery basins in pure mountain spring water. We inherited this recipe from a local lady in Bright and these puddings are extremely popular with families all over the country returning each year to make sure they get their "grand finale" for the Christmas lunch.
They come in 4 sizes (incl. single serve, which is steamed & packed in a small plastic bowl). Home preparation is easy. Simply heat in the oven or microwave – no need to steam or boil. Attractively presented in calico, red satin ribbon and a swing tag, these puddings also make a delicious gift.
After many requests, we also present a gluten-free version of our original Plum Pudding recipe under our new brand "Alpine Valleys Fine Foods".
The Rich Fruit Cake is just that. Full of dried fruit marinated in brandy with marmalade & spices, these cakes are slowly baked to retain their moisture and develop flavours in true fruit cake style. Available in 2 sizes and perfect for any time of the year.
Our gluten-free Chestnut Fruit Cake was born when a local chestnut farmer asked us to make some cakes using their products. Thus this became the gluten-free version of our rich fruit cake using local chestnut flour and chestnut puree.
The Chocolate & Hazelnut Panforte is a product of much cooking, testing and after quite a few tasting sessions with friends, we came up with this wonderful, rich recipe for panforte. Plenty of spice with chunks of fig and date; roasted hazelnuts from our neighbour's farm (Mt. Buffalo Hazelnuts) plus locally grown walnuts, almonds and honey mixed with dark chocolate. A small slice of this with a cup of coffee goes a long way. But be careful, it's addictive.
Corporate Gift Hampers featuring a selection of our fabulous local gourmet produce including magnificent cool climate wines. Presented in red, glossy gift boxes tied with ribbon. All items have been sourced with quality and presentation in mind, so that the gift is fully enjoyed by the recipient. The ribbon can be personalized with your business name for both puddings and gift hampers.
