This is a great alternative to the traditional Christmas pudding.

The lemon syrup that is poured over these puddings just before you serve them gives it a delicious moistness and the fragrant citrus flavour is irresistible. It also works with oranges instead of lemons and you can replace the sour cream with yoghurt.

You can bake the puddings in advance but don’t make the sugar syrup until you wish to eat it. The pudding reheats well in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. I like to serve it with a dollop of sweetened cream or yoghurt and some poached fruit such as apples or pears.

Dentists chip in to give Auckland's Singing Cowboy his smile back

Auckland’s famous Singing Cowboy has got his smile back.

Entertainer Jock Hume, 74, was swimming at Tiritiri Matangi Island, off Auckland’s Whangaparāoa Peninsula, on March 24, when two of his teeth were knocked out by kids who were skipping pebbles.

“It knocked out two of my lovely front teeth. It was such a shock to me, I was stunned,” Hume said at the time.

Hume is a familiar face on the streets of Auckland, where he has performed country and western songs with his acoustic guitar since busking was first permitted in the 1980s.

Following Stuff’s story on the matter, Dr John Wright of Hibiscus Coast Dental rallied a group of dental clinicians and technicians to fix Hume’s teeth, free of charge.

Hume said he was “most grateful and appreciative” of his new smile, which he described as “the best Christmas present ever”.

Forced to choose between food or bills, hard-working parents like Melody worry whether they’ll be able to provide even the simplest Christmas meal for their children.
