Cookbook Giveaway - Quivering Desserts & Other Puddings

Have you ever tasted a real homemade custard pudding? And no, we don't mean the one that comes from a packet, but a beautiful, trembling cream dessert made the old fashioned way with eggs, sugar, milk and cream.

In Quivering Desserts & Other Puddings you will find recipes for both classic puddings such as vanilla, almond, chocolate and wonderful contemporary versions such as salted caramel pudding with caramel popcorn and white chocolate pudding with jasmine tea. And much, much more.

Sounds difficult? It is not. A real pudding just requires a little time at the stove and some hours in the refrigerator. And the reward - a quivering cream artwork that makes children quiver and adults sigh.

You can learn more about Quivering Desserts & Other Pudding in our author interview with Marie. We're delighted to offer 5 copies of the book to EYB Members worldwide. One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post:

Have you ever made a traditional pudding?

    This book looks amazing I would love to have it.

  • imjammin2  on  9/12/2016 at 7:47 PM

    I have made homemade, "from scratch" puddings but never in a mold. I absolutely adore the title of this book!

  • tennyogirl  on  9/12/2016 at 8:22 PM

    I made creme caramel in a rice cooker once. Does that count?

  • rchesser  on  9/12/2016 at 8:33 PM

    Yes I have

  • trudys_person  on  9/12/2016 at 9:04 PM

    I have made blanc mange and tapioca pudding, but nothing that requires a mould. And I love quivery things!

  • kitchenfrolic  on  9/12/2016 at 10:02 PM

    I've never made a traditional pudding before. They always look so amazing - I'm a little nervous to give them a try!

  • jd5761  on  9/12/2016 at 10:54 PM

    I have made several variations of rice pudding

  • Felicity  on  9/12/2016 at 11:53 PM

    I love puddings, sticky date, bread and butter, lemon delicious but oh to have a crack at salted caramel.... Now there's a challenge I look forward to!

  • wester  on  9/13/2016 at 1:45 AM

    Bread pudding, semolina pudding, and recently I found how easy it is to use gelatin (for instance to make panna cotta). I could use some inspiration to actually make them, because it always feels like it's going to be a lot of more work than it actually is.

  • Astrid5555  on  9/13/2016 at 2:06 AM

    Yes, but only vanilla. Would love to try other flavours!

  • Seren_Ann  on  9/13/2016 at 2:16 AM

    I have made blanc mange in a mould, not sure if that counts, but I haven't tried any other puddings, it would be interesting !

  • bookpoet  on  9/13/2016 at 7:54 AM

    I have not. But two beautiful ceramic molds that will be perfect for these puddings just arrived from William Sonoma yesterday (they were on deep discount!). This book is designed for my bookshelf, one way or another.

  • JulesLP  on  9/13/2016 at 8:16 AM

    I have never made homemade pudding.

  • bfg67  on  9/13/2016 at 10:25 AM


  • camtncook  on  9/13/2016 at 10:26 AM

    I love puddings...

  • dbielick  on  9/13/2016 at 12:12 PM

    Yes I have.

  • meggan  on  9/13/2016 at 12:26 PM

    I have made a rose water blanc-mange. Does that count?

  • gjelizabeth  on  9/13/2016 at 1:06 PM

    I make a lovely chocolate cornstarch pudding often, and have made custards and bread puddings.

  • madamepince  on  9/13/2016 at 4:34 PM

    I love making homemade puddings -- this book sounds like it has some amazing new ideas.

  • Siegal  on  9/14/2016 at 7:03 AM

    I made rice pudding!

  • pokarekare  on  9/14/2016 at 7:23 AM

    Oh yes! Spanish cream, lemon delicious pudding, rice pudding, bread & butter pudding, cockies'joy ....

  • AGENT99  on  9/14/2016 at 10:35 AM

    I've made Rice Pudding, but would love to try some others.

  • verorenee  on  9/14/2016 at 12:16 PM

    Yes just simple vanilla and chocolate

  • Nancith  on  9/14/2016 at 8:06 PM

    I have, but it's been a very long time. I used to make good old Jello molds loaded with fruit or vegetables, plus unmolded puddings of all sort. Maybe it's time to get back into it.

  • juazella  on  9/14/2016 at 11:01 PM

    Oh yes, I make a mean chocolate pudding pie.

  • Joyceeong  on  9/15/2016 at 12:47 AM

    Yes, I've made rice pudding

  • EmilyChiam  on  9/15/2016 at 3:44 AM

    I do have a few molds that I have used for Plum and Roselle jellies, Citrus berries terrine (in a round mold), bread and butter pudding, and of course rice pudding.

  • WhitneySanderson  on  9/15/2016 at 12:50 PM

    I've started a tradition of making a maple-vanilla custard pudding every's a nice gluten-free alternative to all the cakes and pies!

  • sharpcatherine  on  9/16/2016 at 8:44 AM

    I'm pretty scarred by childhood blancmanges so haven't attempted anything as an adult - clearly I need the book!

  • sarahawker  on  9/16/2016 at 11:11 AM

    Yes, steamed pudding in a can, I grew up on these in the midwest.

  • pandapotamus  on  9/16/2016 at 11:22 PM

    yes! classic vanilla.

  • t.t  on  9/17/2016 at 12:05 AM

    not unless creme brulee counts...

  • sgump  on  9/17/2016 at 9:40 PM

    If so-called Indian pudding counts--you know, cornmeal and molasses or maple syrup baked at a relatively low temperature for a long time--then, yes (that's what I'd consider "traditional," anyway, where I'm from). The jasmine version in this book sounds delightfully intriguing, though--and I hope a recipe or two with rosewater is included.

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  9/18/2016 at 12:32 AM

    I haven't made a traditional pudding before, but it's something I'd like to try.

  • ampsmom  on  9/18/2016 at 11:26 AM

    Yes I have. Chocolate and tapioca are my favorite!

  • ravensfan  on  9/18/2016 at 11:48 AM

    I never have.

  • rivergait  on  9/18/2016 at 3:28 PM

    One time I brought homemade tapioca pudding to a family gathering. My teenage grandchildren were amazed..."...can you really make that [as opposed to Jell-O cups hanging on a dairy rack]?"

  • Barbara14  on  9/21/2016 at 10:20 AM

    I love puddings, using mostly the powdered version, but I have made them from scratch as well. Looking forward to winning this book for a trip around the world of puddings. :)

  • matag  on  9/21/2016 at 11:50 AM

    Yes pana coda

  • cocecitycook  on  9/23/2016 at 3:46 PM

    Love me some banana pudding with homemade vanilla custard!

  • ltsuk  on  9/23/2016 at 6:17 PM

    Oh yes!

  • JanScholl  on  9/25/2016 at 12:02 AM

    Rice pudding from scratch is beyond heaven!

  • clairew137  on  9/25/2016 at 3:58 AM


  • Orielle  on  9/26/2016 at 8:10 AM

    No I haven't so it's something I need to learn more about.

  • annieski  on  9/28/2016 at 3:18 AM

    No, just bread puddings

  • soopsoop  on  9/30/2016 at 12:34 AM

    Alas, no, I have not yet made a traditional pudding.

  • Terra5  on  9/30/2016 at 1:26 AM

    I am really looking forward to learning more about Eat Your Books. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • cadfael  on  9/30/2016 at 3:34 AM

    Yes a steamed blueberry pudding- traditional family recipe

  • nicolthepickle  on  9/30/2016 at 5:14 AM

    I've made vanilla and chocolates ones, and once a coffee pot de creme if that counts.

  • tarae1204  on  9/30/2016 at 6:00 AM

    Plenty of traditional American puddings - never quite sure what the word refers to in British English though!

  • fionajk42  on  9/30/2016 at 9:00 AM

    I regularly make rice pudding, but not generally with cow's milk as I'm lactose intolerant. I sometimes use coconut milk, sometimes almond milk, both of which give good results. Soy milk doesn't seem to work well, it seems to separate and go grainy.

  • rstuart  on  9/30/2016 at 9:40 AM

    Rice pudding and chocolate mousse...

  • Bhukhhad  on  9/30/2016 at 9:53 AM

    I make a traditional raspberry jelly and sweet cream custard pudding in a mold so that the two layers show beautifully on a plate.

  • GillB  on  9/30/2016 at 2:29 PM

    I love making the old style desserts like flummery and Spanish Cream. And I adore a good baked rice pudding.

  • Peter  on  9/30/2016 at 7:06 PM

    I have made puddings from scratch. With that said, I am always looking for new ideas and techniques that will make this "simple" dessert special to both children and adults.

  • SLane  on  9/30/2016 at 11:30 PM

    Memories ! I've made a chocolate pudding and my mum made a lovely dessert called flummery.

  • RuthHarwood  on  10/1/2016 at 2:08 AM

    Yes made Victoria Sponge and also some Ginger nut biscuits :)

  • Sand9  on  10/1/2016 at 11:13 AM

    Have made sponge puddings - treacle and ginger x

  • Radiantpurple  on  10/1/2016 at 2:33 PM

    Yes? No? If traditional English Plum Pudding counts - then yes :).

  • avanoir  on  10/1/2016 at 10:52 PM

    Yes, rice, tapioca and butterscotch puddings from scratch.

  • goldenpudding  on  10/2/2016 at 6:42 PM

    I love both American style custard puddings and what I tend to think of as pudding i.e. basically steamed cakes, especially Christmas pudding which we make every year.

  • rosiekitty  on  10/2/2016 at 9:19 PM

    Yes, panna cotta, rice pudding, flan. I would love to learn how to make a traditional British steamed pudding, such as Sticky Toffee Date pudding.

  • chawkins  on  10/4/2016 at 5:57 AM

    Tapioca pudding.

  • rosyannposy  on  10/4/2016 at 12:29 PM

    I have made chocolate and vanilla pudding. My mum used to make Christmas pudding with hard sauce when I was a child.

  • kkhammer123  on  10/5/2016 at 9:31 PM

    Never tried to make any kind of pudding other than Jello!

  • Katiefayhutson  on  10/5/2016 at 11:43 PM

    Creme caramel

  • Phil.Adams  on  10/7/2016 at 4:20 AM

    I make a great traditional Christmas Pudding, but they don't quiver!

  • daniellespinato1  on  10/7/2016 at 10:14 AM

    I've only made rice pudding -- I've always been a little intimidated by the prospect of making a traditional pudding. (Although I do love to eat them!)

  • bangss  on  10/7/2016 at 9:18 PM

    I've actually made sour milk pudding with an old gallon of milk... quite palatable, really! I'd totally make it again.

  • amandadegregory  on  10/9/2016 at 7:28 AM

    I have often tried making traditional puddings.

  • stitchan  on  10/9/2016 at 7:31 AM

    I have made Indian pudding, its my favourite

  • CBLee  on  10/9/2016 at 6:50 PM

    I've never made a traditional pudding before.

  • sheridarby  on  10/10/2016 at 3:15 PM

    Yes, Bread pudding

  • alirov  on  10/11/2016 at 7:54 PM

    Bread pudding, rice pudding and my favorite...panna cotta!

  • annmartina  on  10/12/2016 at 1:03 PM

    Yes, many times

  • cheftina888  on  10/15/2016 at 9:42 AM

    I haven't made a traditional pudding = I've only made simple ones like chocolate and vanilla rice pudding. I would love to try out the recipes from this cookbook

  • Nsteinen  on  10/16/2016 at 1:07 PM

    No, I've never tried.

  • tangaloor  on  10/16/2016 at 3:22 PM

    Puddings are the best! I've made butterscotch, chocolate, banana, trifles, fools, panna cotta...
