Favourite puddings

Tell me your favourite Delia pudding for a weekend supper with friends. Preferably not chocolate, can be made the day before, reasonably quick....

Creme Brulee

Has to be creme brulee - easy, simple, made the day before apart from the caramelisation, and totally delicious. Also customisable - just add a fruit puree underneath :)

"Tell me your favourite Delia pudding for a weekend supper with friends. Preferably not chocolate, can be made the day before, reasonably quick...."

This is so easy to assemble and takes minutes to cook and put on the table.
It is a recipe I have adapted from Delia's Kaiserchmarm from the how to Cheat book.


Pre make the pancakes (I always make a supply for the freezer), roll them up and shred them into fine strips, set aside.
Buy frozen sweet black cherries and allow to defrost the day you will use them, drain off the juice and thicken slightly with a little corn flour. Place the defrosted cherries into an oven proof dish about 2 1/2 ins deep,an around 10ins long, add lots of chopped marshmallows, and a couple of bars of whole nuts chocolate broken into pieces, mix together.
(I know you said preferably not choc but it does add to the richness). Add a couple of tbsps of Brandy and then just before you put it into the oven toss the shredded pancakes into a mix of 3 tbsps of icing sugar and one heaped tsp of cinnamon, place on top of the cherry,marshmallow chocolate mix and place in a hot oven until the top of the pancakes are syrupy and golden brown,around 10 mins. Serve with the sauce you thickened from the cherry juice and ice cream or cream.

Sticky toffee puddings

This would be my favourite because it can be made in advance and frozen then defrosted and re-heated when needed with just the toffee sauce to be made on the day.

Pavlova

For me it has to be pavlova, especially when the summer fruits are available. I find Delia's method for a well-shaped pavlova the best too. Never fails and the fact that it keeps for ages until it is needed makes it a favourite of mine.

Puddings

How right you are Yummy, it is a versatile pudding, in fact, both sauce and pudding are good separately. As Honey says the sauce is good with ice-cream, I like the sauce with bananas and pancakes. The pudding is good with ice-cream and fresh fruit. Delicious!

Favourite Puddings

Like Sam I will find it hard to pinpoint a particular favourite, so my top five , in no particular order are:

Lemon Meringue Pie
Lemon Tart
Creme Brule
Rhubarb Crumble
Bread and Butter Pudding.

Actually, now that I look at my list, I think they are in the correct order!

Favourite Pudddings

Creme Caramel - Delia's Cheats version. It is so easy, prepared the day before and quite delicious. I serve it to friends here in France and no-one knows it is a "Cheat"!!!

I also like panna cotta (also a cheaty version) made with Rowntrees jelly and served with fresh berries.

Also on my list:
Bread & Butter Pudding (sultanas soaked in Calvados to make it a bit more interesting)
Queens Pudding (childhood memories)
Semi fredo (coffee version)

Could go on, but I am on the 5:2 Diet and it is fast day and this talk about puddings is not good!!!!!

Like you, Sam, rhubarb crumble is a favourite here too, although we don't have many puddings. Our crumble always includes segments of orange(s)and grated orange peel in the crumble. You could also add powdered ginger, either in with the fruit or in the crumble. My veg box arrives today which will include the rhubarb.

Favourite puddings

A fruit fool served with homemade shortbreads would be nice, or summer pudding which can be made several days in advance.

As I'm not on a fast day today I'll have a small portion of all the above mentioned puddings. They all sound lovely.
