Christmas cake/puddings

5 Replies



First Christmas in Cyprus! Can you get Christmas Pudding/cake, if so are they OK or would it be best to make my own? There is only 2 of us this Christmas so I don't know if it would be worth making my own by the time i've bought all the ingredients :-)

Hi there, if you live in the Limassol area, GB's in Episkopi village have loads and at a very good price too. Much cheaper than you will pay in the supermarkets :-)

You will find Christmas puddings and Christmas cakes in just about every supermarket and food store in Cyprus - but usually much nearer to Christmas.

You can also find them at really good prices if you search... though, as in many countries, there are places that seriously overcharge for what is not, after all, a 'local Cypriot delicacy'.

You'll find 'excellent', 'good' and 'ok' alternatives on offer. But, regardless of the price there are those who always prefer 'home made'... when you know exactly what has gone in to them and recipes can be adjusted to personal taste.

Having said that, there are scores of people/companies on the island that cook cakes, puddings,...and turkeys... to order, and according to your own preferences.
