A Warming Pudding on a Cold Day Straight from the oven!
I remember as a child salivating, as the kitchen was filled with the aroma of pudding baking.....
Dinner would be eaten in double quick time and as my patience faded, I would beg my mother to take the pudding out of the oven! she would always say, 'it's hardly cooked' but it always was!
She'd dish the pudding up, steaming in the bowls - far too hot to get anywhere near, so we would walk up and down the garden path a few times with our bowls in our hands waiting for it to cool down!
Bread and butter pudding tastes pretty good cold too.
