Ate it when I lived in London. So delish

Yum. Pudding in the UK is often a baked spongy thing. But it's also a general term for dessert sometimes, I think. (a slightly old-fashioned one)

I got it at World Market (formerly Pier One)


Off-topic, but as far as I'm aware, those are still two separate stores. There are 2 Pier Ones in my area, as well as a Cost Plus World Market.

I misspoke. World Market/Cost Plus are the twins. Pier One is a separate entity.

I don't remember ever seeing it in a US grocery store ... but i would proabaly be looking in the wrong section, anyway. Heavy gingerbread custard sounds delicious.

You're in the NJ/PA area, right? Maybe try Genuardi's - our local one carries it in the "ethnic food" section.

It's super easy to make...  the only things that weren't normal kitchen things, that I needed, were lard (got from a butcher) and cheesecloth (which to some people is a normal thing).  in my case it was that my best friend owns a copy of Lobscouse and Spotted Dog, based on the Master & Commander series of books; Jack Aubrey is very fond of his pudding.  And, Spotted D*ck or Dog are the same thing; both D words are from the word "Dough."  I've also made the similar (and even more appallingly named) Boiled Baby (or Drowned Baby).

I have finally found the bar I can't get thrown out of....

I would find a 12  year old boy and present it to him  just to film his reaction.  Priceless.  ;D

Or a very nothern one!  A three course meal around here would be starters, then mains, then pudding/sweet/afters depending on which town your parents are from, hardly anybody refers to it as dessert!

Spotted wingadingdingy is great, but not from a tin!  Have you tried bread and butter pudding?

Re the berry custard.  It sounds great!
I just recently ate one of those geoduck (gooeyduck) clams. They ain't purty and I think the appearance (the chef, who is a casual friend because we always go to his restaurant, showed it to us prior to cooking it), affected how it tasted to me.  Let's just say I'm not going to go geoduck hunting anytime soon.  He wasn't being 'blue' showing it to us, even though we all did get a laugh out of it.  He always cooks us weird stuff and shows it to us prior sometimes.  Chicken's feet, anyone?  (I don't like those either, but my dh loves them!)
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

I've had bread pudding and love it, is bread and butter pudding much different?
