Baking expert, author and Great British Bake Off winner Edd Kimber shares a truly decadent way to use up leftover Christmas pudding. His indulgent boozy milkshake recipe features Christmas pudding-infused milk, salted caramel sauce and a hazelnut praline topping – it's sure to impress party guests this festive season. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. 
  2. Put the Christmas pudding, sugar, orange zest, cinnamon stick, star anise and milk into a medium pan and gently bring to the boil. Pour into a heatproof bowl, cover with clingfilm, and allow to cool slightly before chilling in the fridge. 
  3. Meanwhile, make the hazelnut decoration. Spread the nuts on a baking tray lined with nonstick baking paper and toast in the oven until golden. Put the caster sugar in a small pan and cook over a medium heat until fully melted and the sugar has turned a deep golden. Pour the caramel over the hazelnuts. Set aside until set and fully cooled. Once set, break the praline into small shards and use a mortar and pestle to bash into a rough, crumbly mix. 
  4. Once the pudding mixture has chilled, pass through a sieve into a bowl, pressing to extract as much liquid – and flavour – as possible. Put the ice cream into a blender, and then add the liquid pudding mixture, maple syrup and the bourbon. Process until smooth and creamy. 
  5. To make the sauce, put the sugar in a pan set over a medium heat and cook until the sugar begins to melt and caramelise around the edges. Using a spatula, gradually drag the melted sugar towards the middle of the pan to help it melt evenly. Add the cream, butter and the salt. Stir until you have a smooth caramel, pour into a squeezy sauce bottle. 
  6. To serve, drizzle the insides of 6 glasses with a little of the caramel, pour in the shake, top with the squirty cream and sprinkle over the hazelnut mix.
