Irish Bread Pudding – Bread & Butter Pudding . $1.37

Bread Pudding, we always called this, although on the rare occasions I’ve seen this recipe, it’s been called Bread & Butter pudding, probably to distinguish this from the New Orleans’ style of bread pudding which has become so popular. Bread & Butter pudding is layers of lightly toasted bread, spread with butter, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and baked in a custard. So simple, so good, so humble. So Irish…at least in our small little town we grew up in.

Hungry Mum’s Custard Sauce – Creme Anglaise . $1.45

Some custard sauces of today, or Creme Anglaise as they are sometimes known, are getting a bit out of hand. I recently saw one with 6 eggs and a vanilla bean, and while it must have been awesome, I like the idea of this classic sauce from the Hungry Mum. It’s delicious, silky and lovely, and won’t “steal” the show when served with another dessert. It has just the right amount of body to pour and nap, then pool, enveloping your dessert within it’s rich embrace.

The Best Home-made Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate pudding has long been one of my favorite desserts, from the time I sat at the formica table as a child and ate it out of melamine bowls (ours were a robin’s egg blue) to today. If you’re not loving chocolate pudding, it’s likely you’re eating the premade or the mix, both of which pale in comparison to the real thing.
