How to Make:
- Chop the dried mango, prunes and apricots into small pieces and place in a bowl with remaining dried fruit. Add rum, orange zest and juice. Cover and leave at room temperature overnight.
- The next day, grease a 1.2-litre pudding basin and place a small circle of baking paper in the base.
- Add the remaining pudding ingredients to the bowl of soaked fruit, beat well to combine, then spread into the pudding basin. Cut a 30cm square of baking paper and a 30cm square of foil. Place the paper on the foil and fold to make a pleat in the centre. Place over the basin, foil-side up, then tie with kitchen string to secure. Place the pudding basin in a large saucepan and pour in enough boiling water to come halfway-up the side of the basin. Cover and simmer over low heat for 5 hours, topping up water as necessary. Transfer the pudding basin to the fridge and chill for at least 2 days, or up to 1 month, to allow the flavours to develop.
- For the iced rum sauce, using electric beaters, beat cream to stiff peaks. Fold in remaining ingredients, place in a plastic container and freeze for at least 4 hours (you can freeze the sauce for up to 1 week).
- For cranberry toffee sauce, place sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a pan over low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-low and cook, swirling pan occasionally (without stirring), for 3-4 minutes until a golden caramel. Remove from heat. Slowly add cream, taking care as it may splatter. Return to low heat and stir until smooth. Add cranberries and brandy. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes until berries soften. (Sauce can be made in advance and kept chilled for up to 3 days.)
- A few hours before serving, bring pudding back to room temperature. Place pudding basin in a large pan and pour in enough boiling water to come halfway up the side of the basin. Simmer, covered, over low heat for 1 hour or until heated through, topping up water as necessary.
- Remove iced rum sauce from freezer 15 minutes before serving to soften, and gently reheat toffee sauce. Serve pudding warm with iced rum and toffee sauces.
