Pudding doesn’t have to be complicated. Whether you have three ingredients or eight, as long as they work in harmony with one another you’ll always end up with a cracking dessert. Using only four ingredients – if you count the custard as one – this recipe for Pear and Custard Pudding is as simple and effective as it gets. The perfect weeknight, frugal pudding. Oh, and did I mention it has custard?
Rhubarb Crumble is a great early-year British pudding. Quick and easy to make, this foolproof recipe makes use of a fantastic vegetable when there is very little fruit to be had. As a result, though the topping is much the same as it always is, the filling is ever so slightly bitter – a marginally different beast from the crumbles of summer and autumn.
I have been meaning for quite a while to blog a recipe which uses blackberries – we have a whole ice cream tub full left over from last year, and the blackberry season is already upon us! Blackberry and apple crumble being one of my favourite desserts I felt I couldn’t justify not doing this recipe first. Since this is a blog about frugal food and blackberries are free for almost everyone, they are everywhere after all, this seems like an ideal ingredient to use.
