So I drained the xmas pudding vodka which has been soaking for three weeks (its fantastic by the way) but I have got a bowl of what was dried fruit now soaked in vodka.

What can I do with it? Need a simple idea (nothing complicated!)

Make a cake

Dark chocolate brownies

muffins?
scoff it with yoghurt or ice cream
fruit scones/ fruit cake/loaf
the filling for baked apples or streudel

I'd mix it with nice vanilla ice cream to make christmas pudding ice cream... (or make your own if you can be arsed - but there is no need).

Or make an Irish barmbrack with the soaked fruit - no tea needed.

Or put in a tin and put melted dark chocolate over it then break it up when set. I've done this with gin soaked blackcurrants and it was v nice.

Not sure I have time for baking just at the mo.

The xmas pudding ice cream sounds fab - just googled some recipes. Can you really just smash up some ice cream until it softens a bit, mix in the fruit (or xmas pud) and then refreeze??

Yep, did this last Christmas and it worked really well.

Mincemeat, you just stir everything together so no cooking required and your fruit is already soaked.
