  • Easy Huckleberry Pudding

    Easy Huckleberry Pudding

    Continuing with the trend of easy, cheap, filling fruit desserts, is this recipe for huckleberry pudding. I had some huckleberries in the freezer after a friend of mine took me picking at her family property in Mendocino last year. The name huckleberry is used for the dark blue-purple fruit of several different shrubs which are…

  • Mrs Beeton’s Steamed Damson Pudding

    Mrs Beeton’s Steamed Damson Pudding

    One of the wonderful things about living in America has been getting access to ingredients, especially fruit, that is hard to come by in Australia. My latest find was some damsons which are small, very dark, tangy plums. Although they’re now hard to find, and therefore relatively expensive, in America, they were grown across Britain…

  • Peach Snowballs

    Peach Snowballs

    I made these peach snowballs months and months ago, but never quite got around to writing up the recipe.

Not many people realise it but Belfast claims the honour of having built the Titanic, and at the heart of the recently rejuvenated docks like Titanic Belfast. Part museum, part artwork, part monument to Belfast’s working class history, it’s a great way to pass a…

  • A Lemon Blancmange

    A Lemon Blancmange

    First of all, apologies that it’s been a while, between exams, moving and Christmas its been a bit crazy but better late than never. The challenge this time was “Fear Factor”, no not the TV show but a dish, technique or ingredient that strikes fear into your very heart. For me the obvious answer was…

  • The Pudding Bag – A Revelation

    The Pudding Bag – A Revelation

      England has been famous for its puddings for centuries, and the word is now interchangeable with dessert, but it wasn’t always so. Historically puddings were essentially sausages with a filling stuffed into the stomach or intestines of an animal (the word probably comes from the Anglo-Norman word bodin meaning entrails)[1]. Sometimes they were kind…
