Georgian puddings, recreated…

We’ve received these wonderful photos from Catherine, who’s been following our blog over the past few months and trying out the Cookbook recipes in her own kitchen…

First up, this rather stunning apple pudding, accompanied by a perfectly baked Naples biscuit:

Catherine says:

This Apple Pudding is very quick to make and a different way to serve apples.  Modern sponge fingers would work well, but I made a batch of Naples biscuits up since you can’t just go out and buy them these days.  I served it with one.  Now I just need a recipe to use the rest up….

Inspired? Find the recipe in our Biscuit Basics post!

She also made this very fine Spanish pudding:

We love the look of this 18th century style Spanish pudding, created by Catherine from a The Cookbook of Unknown Ladies recipe.

How did it taste? Well, Catherine tells us that while the combination of flavours might seem unusual, “it has a very pleasant, fresh ‘botanical’ flavour from the bay and rosewater”.

We love what Catherine’s created from The Cookbook of Unknown Ladies.

Why not get creative too, and serve up an 18th century style pudding tonight? If you do, be sure to send us the photographs (archives@westminster.gov.uk) or leave a comment here on the blog to let us know how you get on!
