Festive puds

My favourite festive puds
A friend just asked me for some recipes for festive puddings which weren't Christmas cake, Christmas pudding or cranberry based. Hmm.... a challenge!

Having 'mulled' it over (I'm not going to spare you the puns so stop reading if you can't handle it) - I came up with the following:

Rice pudding with apple compote
I had some really nice rice pudding with spiced apple compote at the weekend from Anna Mae's - it can be quite Christmassy with the right spices: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/bakedricepuddingwith_78627

Dark chocolate raspberry banana bread - Sally's baking addiction
I really like this blog for recipes (although it's American so some of the ingredients seem a bit odd). The raspberry and chocolate banana bread is a fail-safe http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2012/06/06/dark-chocolate-raspberry-banana-bread/ 
Baked Vanilla Cheesecake
A baked cheesecake is always a winner too (you don't have to bother with the fancy toppings, the basic vanilla cheesecake is lovely on it's own as long as you use real vanilla pods) http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/vanilla_baked_cheesecake_59336
