What does Santa Claus like to eat? Whats Santa's favoutite recipes and what should i leave out on Christmas Eve for Santa to Eat and drink? Just some of the questions we can answer from our latest interview with Santa Claus. Here at Santa CCTV Cam we recently had the privalage to meet up with Santa and ask him what his favouite foods are and what he would ideally like you to leave out for him. you may imagine his ideal food would be mince pies and Sherry? We think you will be shocked by what his favouite foods are.

Q: Santa, we all know you like to indulge over the Christmas period but do you really eat all those mince pies?

A. HoHoHo. Yes I do get left a lot of mince pies on Christmas Eve. I try to eat as many as I can but some I have to take home and I eat during the year.

Q. What do you like to eat when your at home with Mrs Claus?

A. Mrs Claus makes a cracking Chilli Con Carne. I also like to Eat Lasagne, toad in the hole and Spaghetti bolognaise. I've also been known to indulge in a Chicken Tikka curry from time to time

Q. Do you like to eat puddings?

A. HoHoHo you have caught me out on this one. Yes I do have a sweet tooth. I like sticky toffee pudding, spotted dick and custard and treacle tart with pouring cream. I also sometimes like some mixed icecream with chocolate sauce. Mrs Claus is trying to get me to cut down on my puddings recently.

Q. Can we see your recipe for Sticky toffee pudding its sounds delicious.

A. I'm not sure Mrs Claus will be very happy about me giving out her secret recipes but here it is, Just don't tell anyone...

Santa Claus sticky toffee pudding Recipe:

For the pudding you will need:

225g whole medjool dates

175ml boiling water

1 tsp vanilla extract

175g self-raising flour, plus extra for greasing

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 eggs

85g butter

, softened, plus extra for greasing

140g demerara sugar

2 tbsp black treacle

100ml milk

cream or custard to serve (optional)

For the Toffee Sauce you will need:

175g light muscovado sugar

50g butter

, cut into pieces

225ml double cream

1 tbsp black treacle

Santa Claus Method for Making Sticky Toffee Pudding:

1.)Santa Claus Said: Stone and chop the dates quite small, put them in a bowl, then pour the boiling water over. Leave for about 30 mins until cool and well-soaked, then mash a bit with a fork. Stir in the vanilla extract. Butter and flour seven mini pudding tins (each about 200ml/7fl oz) and sit them on a baking sheet. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.

2.)Santa Claus Said: While the dates are soaking, make the puddings. Mix the flour and bicarbonate of soda together and beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl for a few mins until slightly creamy (the mixture will be grainy from the sugar). Add the eggs a little at a time, beating well between additions. Beat in the black treacle then, using a large metal spoon, gently fold in one-third of the flour, then half the milk, being careful not to overbeat. Repeat until all the flour and milk is used. Stir the soaked dates into the pudding batter. The mix may look a little curdled at this point and will be like a soft, thick batter. Spoon it evenly between the tins and bake for 20-25 mins, until risen and firm.

3.)Santa Claus continues: Meanwhile, put the sugar and butter for the sauce in a medium saucepan with half the cream. Bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring all the time, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Stir in the black treacle, turn up the heat slightly and let the mixture bubble away for 2-3 mins until it is a rich toffee colour, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn. Take the pan off the heat and beat in the rest of the cream.

4.)Remove the puddings from the oven. Leave in the tins for a few mins, then loosen them well from the sides of the tins with a small palette knife before turning them out. You can serve them now with the sauce drizzled over, but they’ll be even stickier if left for a day or two coated in the sauce. To do this, pour about half the sauce into one or two ovenproof serving dishes. Sit the upturned puddings on the sauce, then pour the rest of the sauce over them. Cover with a loose tent of foil so that the sauce doesn’t smudge (no need to chill).

5.)Santa Said: When ready to serve, heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Warm the puddings through, still covered, for 15-20 mins or until the sauce is bubbling. Serve them on their own, or with cream or custard.

Thank you Santa we will give that a try!

Q.) Santa Claus what is your Favourite Drink?

A.) I have to admit I do like a little Sherry on Christmas Eve, however for the rest of the year as the North Pole is very cold I tend to drink Hot Drinks like Hot chocolate, coffee and Tea. Mrs Claus would not be happy if I was Drinking Alcohol at Home.
