The story of Seery's is a genuine Irish success story. In the late eighties, Mrs Philo Seery noticed that it was hard to find traditional Irish fruit cakes in the shops. Using her own recipes and operating from the family kitchen in rural Ireland, she began to bake quality cakes and puddings on a small scale for the local market. As word spread, everybody realised that Philo’s recipes and baking were some of the best in Ireland – quality baking with the best ingredients, resulting in a real home baking taste. Within just 10 years, Seerys expanded to a custom-built bakery on a two acre site in the village of Tinryland, just outside Carlow.
This exquisite Christmas pudding is one of luxury with a mulled wine and ginger topping decorated with candied orange slices.
