Pick a good quality mincemeat if you can, as the taste is so much better, most vary in calories because ingredients differ so much, so be sure to check the calories of the one you use.

For the sweetener for this Christmas Mince Pie Bread Pudding I useSukrin Gold which isa great natural tasting sweetener that is nice and golden just like you expect brown sugar to be. I have tried many different types of sweetener in the pasttrying to find one that is natural and tastes natural and I think this is it. I usually just use some honey or maple syrup, but it’s nice to know I can now use this and reduce the calories even further. Instead of sukrin you can use any sweetener of choice of course. But I recommend sukrin if you can get some.
