TIP: Prue sets the pudding alight. The flames and warm brandy melt the pudding a bit. Here is the secret to getting it right. Keep the turned-out pudding in the freezer or fridge until ready to go. Clear a good bit of the table of paper hats and other inflammable stuff. Better still, clear a side-table. In the kitchen, warm about 3 tablespoons brandy or rum in a saucepan to just warmer than blood heat. If you get it too hot you will lose the alcohol. Stick the holly in the pud and take the pud, matches and warm brandy to the table. Put the pud down at the cleared spot on the table. Put the brandy pan down on a mat out of reach of little fingers. Stand back as you carefully light the brandy and pour it, flaming, over the pud. It will flare up and crackle as it illumintes the holly in the room.
