Eggnog Cream

by . Featured in NIGELLA CHRISTMAS

Introduction

The traditional sauce for Christmas pudding is a "hard sauce", that's to say brandy butter but I can't help feeling that this corner-cutting Eggnogg Cream, devised for my Express festivities last year, is best of all.

Actually, Dom, my long-suffering TV director, does a version of this with brandy, which also hits the spot (I think the cool cream factor is key), though you will need to whip in a tablespoon or two of icing sugar — no more — as you go.

For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.

Method

  1. Put the cream into a bowl and, using an electric whisk, start whipping to aerate and thicken. While it's still floppy, whisk in the advocaat, and once the yolk-yellow, eggnog-flavoured liqueur is combined and the cream thick but still soft, stop and spatula into a generous bowl and serve with the pudding.
