For the boozy cream:
Whip the double cream in a bowl with the orange rind and sugar until soft peaks have formed.
Fold in the brandy and transfer to a serving bowl. Cover with cling film, and then chill until ready to use.
For the pudding:
Heat the Christmas pudding according to packet instructions.
When ready to serve, turn the Christmas pudding on to a warmed serving plate and dim the lights in the dining room!
Heat the brandy in a small pan, transfer to a ladle and then ignite with a match.
Pour over the Christmas pudding and bring to the table immediately.
Serve into warmed serving bowls and hand around the boozy cream separately so that everyone can help themselves.
