We were sent a baking subscription box from The Pudding Post!
For those who don’t know who The Pudding Post are……….
Once a month you are sent the ingredients and recipe to make a “Pudding Post Pud”. In your box (that’s letterbox friendly) you receive an easy-to-follow recipe from The Pudding Post’s Patisserie Chef and all the ready-weighed and freshly vacuum packed ingredients ready to bake your pudding!
In our box we received;
- McVitie’s Ginger Biscuits
- Caster Sugar x 3
- Lindt Dark Chocolate
- Green & Blacks Ginger Chocolate
- White Wine
- Lemon Juice/Zest
- Madagascan Vanilla Bean Paste
- Sprig of Thyme
- Conference Pears
These ingredients, along with butter, eggs and water, which were the only things I had to provide, were to make…..
Now, I need to own up to something. In the time it took the box to get to me, I came down with a really bad illness and ended up in hospital. Because of this (and the fact I couldn’t get out of bed for the best part of a week), when I came to make the above pudding, the pears had gone off (they had a shelf life date on them).
I had NO pears in the house, and so, after a small amount of deliberation, decided to use apples.
The ingredients were really good quality-which obviously helped (and my culinary skills too!) I’m not usually one for a recipe which calls for more than about five ingredients, so I was a little concerned that I’d struggle, but it was instructed on the recipe card so well, I found it as easy as basic recipes!
40 minutes went by, and it came out looking more like the picture than I’d imagined it would! The recipe card said to serve at room temperature, but I was straight in with a fork as soon as it went onto the plate. The apple’s tasted amazing too-as I’m sure the pears would’ve done had we used them in time!
As they say, the proof is in the pudding, and our little lady just loved Mummy’s creation!
The boxes are priced at £44.50 for three months of Pudding Post, and £89 for 6 months! Once broken down into months, plus the quaility of the ingredients, this really is an amazing box of cakey goodies to have!
(We even had some chocolate left over! So I made brownies! )
