Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Crème caramel from Louise Hilary

    • onetui on January 02, 2013

      After twice trying unsuccessfully to make the caramel, it worked better with 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons (not 3) of water. Dissolve the sugar in the water off the heat, then put it on a medium heat and bring to the boil without stirring. Tilt rather than shake the pan to avoid crystals forming.

  • Ambrosia

    • Hellyloves2cook on November 02, 2012

      I doubled the quantities for this recipe. Made it because my 14 yr old loves milk puddings and he used to adore tinned rice pud in UK called "ambrosia creamed rice". I cooked it for about 55 mins rather than the 40. My son prefers his warm with some raspberry Jam- verdict 10/10. Result!!

  • Lemon meringue pie

      3.15 Didn't work cooling the base and then filling - the meringue leaked. Tasty but not pretty.

Publishers Text

'What's for Pudding?' is a question that has been asked around New Zealand dining tables for generations. A family will eat the main course and be satisfied, but the main event, the thing waited for with the greatest anticipation by all is, of course, pudding. In What's for Pudding Alexa Johnston brings together the sweet delights that have graced New Zealand tables for generations. Hot and cold puddings, as well as all kinds of baking, became a significant outlet for the creative genius of countless New Zealand women. The excellent recipes that they contributed to community recipe books are the source of many of the puddings Alexa Johnston has collected here and, although some of the recipes are very old, they are all delicious. Puddings may have become an occasional treat nowadays but a beautiful dessert or a simple family pudding will provide the perfect end to any special meal. Lemon Delicious or Chocolate Fudge Pudding, Jam Roly-Poly, Apple Pie and Baked Apples, Fruit Flummery, Ice Cream and Jelly, Lemon Meringue Pie, Upside-Down Pudding, Spanish Cream, Rhubarb Crumble, Hot Fruit Sponge ...these simple family puddings - and Alexa Johnston's mouth-watering collection of recipes - have a universal and timeless appeal.
