"I don't like cream"

Sorry, don't understand this combination of words.

That sounds pretty good, liverpoolbabe, although I don't like cream myself - I will try the rest of the recipe. It sounds like an unbaked version of Bread and Butter Pudding - only boozier and yummier! :o>

Now I read that the "Upper Classes" always refered to "Afters"!Lol! as "Pudding and it was the new rich that started to use the word dessert in the 20' show their scorn for the wannabe's and to keep them elite...the upper classes kept the old "Pudding" word to distinquish them from the new money people.

Here's one for you Charlie:

Buy a loaf of brioche
Buy a tub of good quality ice cream (Hagen Daaz, Ben and Jerry's etc) - whatever flavour you fancy
Buy toppings - whatever goes with the ice cream (whipped cream in can, chocolate sauce, butterscotch sauce, fruit, chopped nuts etc)

Leave ice cream out of freezer for long enough to soften. Take 2 slices of brioche and make Ice cream sandwich, add topping to ice cream and/or top brioche. If you want to get fancy for a dinner party, dip the sandwich sideways into melted chocolate, place on plate and decorate (red fruit always good with chocolate), edible flowers, dust with icing sugar.

Lol, I just came on to say the same thing Ori! Def gonna try it but not till it's warmer! We're frozen solid here. Xx

True, unless you live in a very warm house!
I have to say after 30 years of living in an unheated flat in Seville, I found visits to US relatives oppressive because of the central heating. That and all the salt in the food, used to make me ill every time.

Ori - I liked it and made a note of it. The problem is it was -6C round my way last night, and sorbet/fruit/sangria has to be a summer pudding.

Posted on 14 Dec 2012 15:43:10 GMT
I take it the sorbet/fruit/sangria idea didn't appeal...

panettone trimed and sliced then buttered with a very very good apricot jam layer in a dish pour over Amarette quite a lot... make up some custard not to thin and cover the panettone make sure it goes down to the bottom of the dish place in fridge over night
serve cold with spray cream .....brill

My in laws are too so it didn't really wash as a theory anyway!? Any other ideas?

Btw thank you for all the lovely 'dessert' ideas guys. I tried suzysunshine's sweet pasta idea last night and tonight is cheats brûlée/can't remember what pixie called it yoghurt/ cream sugar pud! ( sorry dessert! ;) )
I don't have a microwave so can't try the chocolate pud idea, sounds great way to knock a hot quick pud up ( aargh, I can't stop myself using pudding!!!!! )

I can blow that theory out of the water too - my parents were quite posh!

Lol, guess that's that theory out of the water then, maybe I use the word because I'm common as muck then???

Charlie - I was brought up as Southern as its possible to be. London was up north for us.

Charlie says:
That's what I was brought up with bear, maybe it's a regional thing? But then I'm from a northern family, OH is S.African/Welsh and we both say pudding?

In reply to an earlier post on 14 Dec 2012 10:00:44 GMT
Yes Bear, like many things, we all have a different take on it and will probably never

CD - sorry I don't know. I always thought of pudding as informal, so you would eat it at an informal meal eg supper (family), and that dessert was posher, and would be eaten at a more formal meal eg dinner (invited guests). Sweet I always thought of as a generic term for all things sweet, though we never used it as a term like pudding/dessert when I was growing up.

Have to agree Pix, it doesn,t ring my bell either. I,ve seen pasta in quite a few sweet recipes and they all sound yeeeuuurk to

What a fantastic idea for a gift?! I know I would be delighted by something like that.
I hope it arrives in time for Christmas for you. I am not going Christmas shopping this year. It was simply too difficult last year - so I am just keeping my gifts to a minimum and buying online instead.

I'd definitely phone your local Hotel Chocolat - mine were expecting some to be delivered this week but due to high demand (blame Nigella!) they hope to get some next week now.
If I can get hold of it before xmas I'm tempted to buy two and wrap one with the recipe to give someone as a gift! I doubt using ordinary pasta would work as well but haven't tried it.

Monica, I tried that mug recipe. The comments are definitely worth reading - I flavoured mine with the higher amount of good cocoa, vanilla and coffee essence and a pinch of sea salt, microwaved on high for 45-50 seconds as mine's a powerful 1000 watt one until it was cooked but with a pool of chocolate at the bottom (so good idea to keep checking), and poured cream over to serve.
It has the texture of a cross between cake, souffle and mousse, not as good as a real gooey cake but ideal for a quick fix of chocolate.
