Black Forest Fruit Sponge Pudding…


Who doesn’t love a good pudding? Especially when served with some custard while sitting infront of a fire and watching a bit of telly.

You can change the fruit to apples, apple and plum, gooseberries, pear and apple etc, just change the syns accordingly.


Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…

  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • Mixing bowls are always wanted in this household and these stackable ones save so much space in our cupboards.
  • An electric whisk.
