TOTP - Top Ten Puddings



We love puddings, or desserts as our American cousins refer to them. We love them so much that we even rank them, here is Robs top ten list:-

  • 10 – Chocolate Cake
  • 9 – Apple Crumble and Custard
  • 8 – Vienetta
  • 7 – Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
  • 6 – Butterscotch Angel Delight
  • 5 – Strawberry Angel Delight
  • 4 – Jam Roly Poly
  • 3 - Apple Pie and squirty cream
  • 2 – Cheesecake
  • 1 – Treacle Tart and Custard

Now for those non British types who are curious to know about some of these quality desserts (such as listeners who have subscribed to www.britcaster.com) we recommend that you listen and learn. If you feel like you have a list for us then please email topofthepods@gmail.com.

Puddings would be dessert over here in the good ol' U.S. of A.
Man, I could go for some treacle pudding and custard, haven't had one of those in ages.
I make a great chocolate cheesecake (American style, with cream cheese), and I also do a cherry cheesecake (British style, with cottage cheese).
Nice list, makes me hungry for some.

Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate, topped with chocolate.

Vienetta! I remember that stuff. We used to get it sometimes for special occasions. I haven't seen it in the stores in years, though. Of course, that might be just because I haven't looked for it...

I'm not entirely sure what angel delight is, but I'm pretty sure the butterscotch version would be better. (It's just layers of angel food cake and pudding, right?)

I am SO hungry now...

We rarely have puddings these days. The kids do a bowl of ice cream though, self service. Used to have pudding after every meal, and only allowed to if one finished one's meal too. Holiday meals we do though. Like Pumpkin or Sweet Potato Pie. Or, if we are fortunate enough to get a parcel from my brother in the UK, some Christmas Pudding. Usually I just have a Dove dark chocolate 'square', fewer calories etc. Always have room for that :-).
