tangy on the tongue
Now, although I could pretty much eat both of these myself, I decided to take them along to my sister Shelley’s house when the whole family all got together for lunch. There’s a lot of us so the two puddings would be perfect. I was assuming that the little people wouldn’t be trying any (because I wouldn’t let them!)
We popped the lemon pud in the oven. Just the smell of it when you take it out of the packaging is enough to get your mouth watering, but the whole kitchen was filled with that lovely citrus scent when it was ready to be served after 20 minutes and the lemon drizzle topping was bubbling away.
There’s something really great about a pudding. I think it’s the way the lemon topping oozes onto the cakey part giving it that extra kick. I tried to share it out evenly, but kept a sneaky bit back for a second taste – you know, just to be sure I REALLY liked it! Of course I did! I loved it. It was sweet and tangy with just the right amount of goo. The pudding was also really light and fluffy. I’d love to know what their secret is?
Get ready for summer
The summer pudding was served cold but I think it would have tasted great warmed up too. Can you heat up summer pudding? I’m not sure, but I love a warm mix of berries with a dollop of creme fraiche.
Again I shared it out with my family. The moment I cut into the dome you could see all the berries bursting to get out. The cordial syrupiness was really lovely and made for a very moist pudding.
