“For me, making Christmas Puddings is all about tradition. My Gran & Grandpa owned and ran the Yarra Glen Grand Hotel in the Yarra Valley, Victoria. Gran was the cook, so an obsession with food and cooking is in my blood. If Gran was here today, l know she would be the proudest grandmother on the planet and that makes me happy. Gran was all about tradition. She would make our family puddings and the table was always set with silver cutlery, silver serving platters, silver salt and pepper shakers, so that’s where the “Silver” in Silver Penny Puddings comes from. The tradition of putting silver coins into the pudding is also a memory, although Gran used to wrap a $50 note in glad wrap. Overall my aim is to deliver you with a product that you will love and would recommend to others. So please, ENJOY!”
Silver Penny Puddings aim is to produce the best Traditional English Christmas Pudding with quality Australian produce. There are no added colours, flavours or additives.
Each year production commences in early Spring to ensure customers receive a mature and developed pudding for their Christmas table. The ideal compliment is our rich and smooth Spiced Brandy sauce. This is also produced at Silver Penny and was awarded a Gold Medal at the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards in 2016 and 2018. In 2019 our Spiced Brandy Sauce was awarded Champion Product & Best In Class receiving another Gold Medal.
Most Christmas puddings on the market today are made using butter. Silver Penny Puddings uses the more traditional ingredient, Suet. This produces a much lighter and richer flavour.
Over the past ten years Silver Penny has grown from a small number of puddings for family, friends and market stalls to a commercial quantity production. Now we are on the shelves of many retail outlets and supermarkets, with distributors in WA, SA, NSW and VIC. The list of stockists is growing rapidly.
When each oven cycle finishes and we open the oven door and look at the beautiful puddings come out all steamy and glossy, it makes us proud.
Three years running we have collaborated with Four Pillars Gin, making their Christmas Gin Christmas Pudding. These are only available to purchase directly through Four Pillars Distillary and at their Myer pop up stores in Melbourne, Chadstone and Sydney
