Christmas Pudding Hunt

Kitchenaid mixer and signed copy of At My Table

The competition is open to everyone – wherever you live in the world – all you need to do is sign in to, or quickly register if you aren’t already a member. Don’t worry - it’s a painless process, and free! Then you are ready to play.

Every day, from the 1st to the 24th of December, we’ll give you a hint to find that day’s numbered Christmas pudding, which will be hidden on one of Nigella’s Christmas recipes. Search for the recipe that you believe the hint is linked to, click on the recipe, and if you are correct, you’ll see a numbered Christmas pudding. Click on the pud, when signed in to your account, to add it to your collection. The last pud will be on 24th of December - and if you’ve managed to find all the puds, you will be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win this fabulous KitchenAid Artisan 4.8L Tilt-Head Stand Mixer in Copper, along with a copy of Nigella’s new book At My Table, signed for you. And we have five more copies of At My Table, ready to be signed by Nigella for our five runners-up.

Don’t worry if you miss a day – or if you come to the competition after the 1st – you can still enter. You can see the previous days’ hints below, and collect the puds you’ve missed. It also provides a handy checklist so you can make sure you’ve got all your puds.

The winners will be drawn in the New Year and announced on the site. Happy hunting!

Today's Hint


Christmas just got cute, and when you find these mini puddings you'll know why. They look like a box of chocolate truffles but are made instead from Christmas pudding - genius!

    This French Christmas creation is rather like a chocolate roulade, but once decorated you WOOD never know.

    You could make this as your Christmas cake if you're a last-minute merchant. It's full of fruit and is rich, damp and treacly - just don't spread all your marmalade on your toast this morning.

    Today's delicious recipe has the word cake and pudding in the title - what more could you want from this Italian beauty?

    This is the perfect condiment to eat with your ham, hot or cold; and these spiced canned fruits make a great present in a jar.

  • 5

    This is a family recipe from Nigella, and it's traditionally eaten with poultry. It's made from a stale loaf and spiced hot milk, but don't let that put you off - it's delicious.

    This recipe is a Christmas centrepiece on your table, but it's not the turkey - unwrap the parcel after a slow night's cooking and stud with cloves.

    These tiny pastry treats just shout Christmas and rightly so as you'll only eat them at this time of year - just remember to save one for Santa by the fire with a glass of the good stuff.
