Easter is just around the corner, and we are delighted to share with you a traditional Easter pudding recipe, a dish that is commonly served during this festive period. This particular Easter pudding recipe is courtesy of Chef Indika Prasanna, the Executive chef at Coco Bodu Hithi.

4. Place the butter, flour, sugar, zests, and eggs in a bowl with a pinch of salt and whisk with an electric hand whisk until it gets combined. 

5. Stir in the dried fruit, and then divide between the moulds. 

6. Carefully pour hot water from the kettle into the roasting tin, until it comes about one-third to halfway up the sides of the moulds.
