    1. Place all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well together.
    2. Grease the Pyrex Cook & Go round dishes and place a piece of grease proof paper at the bottom of the dish to prevent sticking. Fill 2/3 full with the mixture.
    3. Cover the dish with a double layer of grease proof paper which is pleated in the middle and then cover with a layer of foil, which is also pleated in the middle.
    4. Tie a piece of string around the rim of the dish and a 2nd piece from underneath of the dish to the top, creating a handle.
    5. In a large saucepan, place a heatproof dish at the bottom (upside down), and put the Cook & Go dish on top.
    6. Pour boiling water into the saucepan until it reaches half way.
    7. Cover the saucepan with a lid and once boiled, reduce to a simmer for 5 hours (or 1 hour for the Cook & Go mini dishes). Remember to check the water frequently and top up as needed.
    8. The pudding is ready once a skewer, inserted in the middle comes out clean.
    9. Remove pudding from the dish by placing a lid on top and turning the dish upside down.
    10. Finish with icing sugar and some cranberries briefly cooked in orange juice.
