    I love a steamed steak pudding, cooked for hours and hours so the suet crust is light and golden. It’s warming and satisfying on a winter day, and goes perfectly with my perfect winter vegetable – brussels sprouts

  2. Suelle

    My favourite pudding is a fruit crumble. I love it because it’s best made with seasonal British fruit such as gooseberries, rhubarb and blackberries, and because it’s so simple and quick to put together – it can be in the oven within a few minutes of deciding you need a pudding!

  3. Tracey Peach

    Steamed Pudding I love it because I love cake & I have a sweet tooth so the jam/treacle that you put at the bottom is delicious with the steamed cake topping 🙂

  4. Tracy NixonK

    I love a traditional homemade rice pudding as I love the creaminess and the skin that forms on the top!

  5. Annette Oliver

    Suet pudding with treacle smothering the top and the bit I love most of all, the custard

  6. Heather Haigh

    I love spotted dick with custard – memories of childhood and real comfort food.

  7. Choclette

    It has to be spotted dick. My mother was a big fan of suet puddings and cooked a lot of them when I was growing up – now ingrained into my psyche, even though I’ve never made it myself.

  8. Emilie Williams

    I love eton mess as it has such a range of flavours and textures, and always makes me feel summery 🙂

  9. Marlene Stevens

    I love bread and butter pudding, its a classic, simple and delicious.

  10. Mim

    It’s a toss-up between golden syrup pudding – with a bit of ground ginger in the pudding batter – or a steak and ale steamed pudding. Ah, why not have both?

  11. Solange

    I love spotted dick with custard as it’s yummy and reminds me of my childhood.

  12. Sandra Lane

    Sussex Pond Pudding is a lovely lemony pudding and when served with custard it’s divine.

  13. Ellie Wood

    Jam roly poly and custard. It’s just so lovely and tasty on a rainy day

  14. Janice

    My favourite is Summer Pudding, soon be time to make another one, as soon as my blackcurrants are ripe in the garden 🙂

  15. Lisa Wilkinson

    I love a curd tart. I love the soft curd & raisins with the crunchy shortcrust base. My mum used to buy us them as treats so it also reminds me of my childhood.

  16. Tim Homewood

    Trifle has to be my favourite it’s a pudding, not just because of its taste but also all the memories it brings back. Trifle is one of the puddings that was always served when visitors came for a meal, and it always was served in the trifle bowl. To be honest it was just a glass bowl often used for other things but it was always referred to as the trifle bowl. Clearing out my partners parents house now means we have their trifle bowl and I like the fact they too had the same approach to trifle.

  17. Diana

    Plain steamed pudding, made with the pound cake proportion of an equal weight of salted butter, eggs, sugar and self-rising flour. Steaming makes the pudding wonderfully soft, rich and satisfying.

  18. Heather Haigh

    Spotted dick and custard – it reminds me of my childhood and is so filling and comforting.

  19. sharon martin

    i love an homemade rice pudding, as it simple,tasty and so satisfying

  20. Helen W

    I love Queen of Puddings the most. It has all my favourite elements of other puddings I love (the jam from jam roly-poly pudding, the meringue from lemon meringue pie, and the bread and butter pudding style custard base). Yum!

  21. Sheri Darby

    I adore Bread and butter pudding – cheap to prepare, always have all the ingredients and always delicious

  22. Adrian Bold

    I love apple and rhubarb crumble. Its just something my Mum used to make in my childhood, which I used to love with custard!

  23. Andrew Hindley

    Bury Black Pudding – I love the taste and it reminds me of my home town

  24. Emily Hutchinson

    Apple crumble, well any crumble really, I just adore it, with extra thick cream

  25. Natalie Crossan

    Eton mess or as my friend very famously said (and has never lived it down) Eat-and-mess. Oh bless her x

  26. Victoria Prince

    My favourite is Rhubarb Crumble 🙂 because I love the combination of the crunchy topping with the wonderful juicy tartness of rhubarb underneath – yum, serious cravings now!
