Custards and Puddings
Old-Fashioned Persimmon Pudding
This is an old-fashioned persimmon pudding recipe from which people who say they don't like persimmon pudding DO like this one. It is more moist and more like the consistency of pumpkin pie filling. It's wonderful topped with whipped cream or milk poured over it.
Christmas Plum Pudding
This is a fairly basic British Christmas plum pudding recipe but unlike other recipes it can actually have plums in it. Unfortunately the ingredient list is so long, it isn't easy to make it in less than industrial quantities! You can substitute a mixture of fresh and dried apricots, peaches, etc. for the plums and milk for the ale if you wish. Serve with brandy or rum butter.
