Rum or brandy butter made with your range cooker

  • 4 oz (110g) unsalted butter
  • 4 oz (110g) light muscovado sugar
  • Grated rind of an orange
  • 4 tbsp dark rum or brandy
Put the butter into a bowl and put beside the range cooker to soften for 20 minutes.

Whisk the butter, and add the sugar and orange rind and then gradually beat in the rum or brandy. Pile into a bowl and refrigerate until needed.

On Christmas Day, remove from the fridge and bring to room temperature before spooning generously over Christmas pudding or mince pies.
