Achilles, the Fat Club is doing its job so well that we've all developed the sort of obsession with food that happens to anorexics and prisoner-of-war camp inmates.

I make a gorgeous cake that sounds a bit like yours, Hildegard, except mine has ground almonds and white flour - and apricots! But it's definitely a cake rather than a pudding.

My mum used to make something that I think was "Chocalate queen of Puddings"

Basically bread and butter pud , made with chocolate powder and jam and with whisked egg whites on top


Oh and my grandad used to make the best steamed puds in the world !

Yuk Rather have a starter
Or a gin
Nigella does a very easy cake made with whole boiled oranges and ground almonds and eggs and sugar
Apparently my friends liked this one

Achilles, I think that Snoop is working on the calendar!

Now you're talking. I could live without chocolate but absolutely love puddings and cakes, but they are usually wasted as proper desserts at the end of a meal. I'd rather meals stay savoury and have a pudding blowout in the afternoon, or first thing in the morning when you're a bit hungover, pottering around the kitchen eating the leftovers straight out of the dish.

Proper icecream.
Sticky toffee pudding with icecream
Crushed meringue with whipped cream, sliced bananas and chocolate sauce
Chocolate mousse
Lemon tart (Drew's sounds good but I haven't got a blowtorch)
Rhubarb crumble with cream.
Waffles with whipped cream and good raspberry jam.
No custard.
No cheesecakes, tortes or wobbly gelatine bits.
Ditto synthetic cream and tinned mandarine slices.

Creme brulee
bread and butter pudding
Ice cream - as long as it's quality stuff
banoffee pie with cream
Spotted dick with white sauce (steamed pudding with raisins in case anyone thinks I'm getting kinky!)
Mississipi mud pie
Many of the other stuff - jam roly poly etc
Apple crumble, or indeed charlotte
raspberry pavlova

curse this diet!!!!!

Chocolate surprise pudding - the kind with the sponge top and sauce base - with cream;

Aunt Reba's New York Jewish cheesecake, the real stuff.

Black cherries stewed in kirsch, lemon juice and almond extract, over madeira cake;

Peaches poached in marsala wine with mascarpone;

Chocolate brownie topped with the best vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce;

Strawberries, just as they are.

I feel like Mr. Creosote from Monty Python's 'Meaning of Life' just by writing this!

Does anyone read cookbooks just for fun, without even contemplating making anything?

Is this turning into a gastroporn thread?

Not puds though

A fair selection of the above but especially:

Sticky toffee pud with added pecans and custard so thick you can turn the bowl upside down and it doesn't fall out!

followed by:

...a nice lie down to take the pressure off my stomach...

Dalya, I'm the opposite - I cook without reading cookbooks, although I do own a selection of the offending articles. Did try "Domestic Goddess" recipes after getting the book as a present (somebody's idea of a joke), but the ones I tried didn't bloody work, not even the chocolate crispie cakes and the fairy cakes. So back to the "chuck-it-in-and-stir-it-up" recipes I imbibed at Granny's knee.

Puds are my thing in a big way. When not running, I'll skip the starter to leave room for a pud. When I am running, I'll skip the starter to leave room for three puds (and empty the bread basket too - don't start me on bread).

OK - so sticky toffee pudding just has to be the best, although I have a quest to find the finest creme brulee in the universe which I take very seriously....as a quick fix those new Cadbury Dairy Milk bars with caramel in them are pretty outstanding though.
Velociraptor...persist with the Domestic Goddess...the brownies are heavenly especially if you undercook them slightly so the middle is dead gooey....and the chocolate cherry cupcakes are yum too
I think puddings are the motivation to run when it's hard to come by

how could I forget tiramisu?!
12/09/2002 at 12:06
quick message to the monkey-I sell both sticky toffe pud and sticky toffee meringue in my restaurant..............
12/09/2002 at 12:34
Panna Cotta. Cranachan.

Can't spell either of these properly. One's italian, one's scottish. Both are heavenly.

both the above with custard

home made (by Mrs S) rice pudding topped with Olde English marmalade - brings out the Seville orange taste exquisitely

hokey pokey icecream - vanilla icecream with bits of honeycomb-type stuff inside - best eaten out of the tub with a tea spoon...
