Book Description

Please be upstanding, ladies and gentlemen, for the greatest puddings that this fair land has to offer!

Celebrating the gooiest, yummiest, sweetest treats that made Britain great, this new cookbook lets you in on the secrets of the best desserts in the country. From steamed sponges (chestnut and chocolate pudding) to classic crumbles (apple, blackberry and cinnamon), forgotten creations such as Lord Randall's pudding and school dinner favourites like jam roly poly, through chocoholic delights to perfect rice pudding and vintage Christmas pudding, this book is a genuine pud-lover's delight.

With 150 foolproof, tried-and-tested recipes, easy instructions and colour photographs, this is the essential pudding cookbook from the real experts.

About the Author

THE PUDDING CLUB was founded at the Three Ways House Hotel in 1985 to prevent the demise of the great British Pudding, at a time when restaurants seemed to offer only tiny portions of frozen cheesecake and tasteless gateaux. Today the Pudding Club and its supporters can claim that their efforts have re-established such delights as jam roly poly, syrup sponge, spotted dick and bread and butter pudding as favourites throughout the country -- and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great British Puddings Aug. 21 2014

Great Book!! I have made a couple of the recipes and have found that I enjoy the making as much as the eating! The Apple Toffee pudding is, so far, my favorite. I also plan on making several Plum Puddings for the holidays to give as gifts. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to try some classic British pudding recipes. The ingredients and oven temps are in European measurements so some conversions will need to be done. I used a food scale and had no issues, and I found many sites on the web to convert Celcius to Degrees Farenheit. Give this book and the recipes inside a try and you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like puddings, nice! Dec 17 2012
By I. Darren - Published on
Uh oh. Hide the mirrors. Find the comfy clothes with the baggy waistline. British Puddings ahoy!

If you are harbouring ideas about a diet and you have a bit of a sweet tooth turn away now. If you a foreigner who has not learned the delights of British puddings then, boy is this a treat for you. The strap line for this book had this reviewer alert like a dog to a bone: "Over 140 sweet, sticky, yummy, classic recipes from the world-famous pudding club." Now, this reviewer has no idea what this pudding club is, famous or otherwise, but that is not the point. This book has a lot of lovely recipes for lovely things.

Short of having one's own personal chef and there are not that many restaurants in Finland making good-for-honest British puds, one tends to have to rely on "food parcels" from the mother country or undertake a spot of DIY. Of course, when time is a bit short, it is sort of easy to kid yourself that you won't make such a pudding since you are watching your waistline, yet be presented with a rather nice pudding menu in a pub or restaurant and suddenly it is a lot harder to say no...

So this book of culinary torture and pleasure (can this be what S&M really is?) is split into key chapters of champion puddings; school-dinner puddings; family favourites; forgotten puddings; puddings with a twist; chocoholics & nut cases; summer puddings and finally winter puddings. All self explanatory. The book starts with a "what is the pudding club?" page of text and then it is straight to cooking. A plethora of hints and tips begin so you have no excuse to wondering what or why you would steam a pudding. This reviewer didn't see a speech on why custard is important, but he was rather distracted and begs the author's indulgence if such an omission was not, in fact, an omission.

The recipes are concise, well written and illustrated with the culinary equivalent of "erotic" pictures. The pudding virgin gets to see the dish in its natural glory whilst the more experienced enthusiast has an object of lust in their hands (!) as well as a possibly rumbling tum. There are even little pudding information nodules throughout to help bolster your pudding knowledge when you subsequently begin to enthuse these dishes to those who are perhaps not 'in on the secret'.

Sure, there are many books with many different pudding recipes. Yet this book manages to combine a lot of great puddings, useful information and general pudding good-feeling in its relatively compact little form. The price tag makes it accessible to all and can perhaps even help reinforce the stereotype about British cuisine whilst breaking it at the same time. You'll have to read this book to learn more. An eminently suitable book for all, well unless you are really counting those calories and are on a misery diet of celery sticks and water that is!

3.0 out of 5 stars This book lacks a bit of imagination! Aug. 9 2014
By Francisca - Published on
I came across this book in a bookshop and as it was cheap I decided to give it a try. I have read all the recipes but I have tried only one, the Custard Tart which I have to confess that I didn’t like. I am now going to try another recipe of the same Tart, I think that it is a Delia Smith one. The book lacks a bit of imagination, it is a bit too low key and not all recipes have a photo, something I always enjoy. The photos are mostly also not that good, they are a bit dull maybe in an effort to make them appear vintage. I am not sure that so many steamed puddings will be to my taste, many of them sound like cakes but the only difference is that they are steamed and from what I read I won’t be surprised if they are very sweet, something I dislike but so far I give this book the benefit of the doubt and anyway, if it turns out that I don’t like British puddings I can’t blame the book for that, can I? I would like to be present at one of the Pudding Club meetings, they sound like fun and sleep in one of the themed bedrooms also because I have never been to the Cotswolds. The book has quite a good index which I always value because it makes the finding of the recipes so much easier. There are old school pudding recipes, puddings for festive occasions, Summer puddings, chocolate and nut puddings, forgotten puddings, winter puddings, etc.

I wish that they had adapted the recipes to just one size of tin of each type. It is not very wise to expect people to buy all kinds of sizes in all kinds of types and it is more difficult for us to scale the recipes then for them! Measurements in metric and imperial.

I will post an update as soon as I have tried more recipes but if you are a real fan of British puddings… then I suppose this is the book for you!
