The winter chill has arrived and nothing is more comforting during the colder months than making an old-fashion pudding to warm the cockles of your heart. The dull and dreary grey days will vanish with delicious, comforting favourites like golden syrup dumplings, chocolate self-saucing puddings or the apple pie with lashings of custard and cream.

Lemon delicious is definitely one of our favourite puddings from childhood. Its layers of lemony sponge cake and creamy custard are just delicious – obviously that’s why it’s called a lemon delicious! With lemons plentiful in winter, it makes a perfect dessert (check out our recipe on p. 339 of The Food Book). However, have you tried substituting lemons with other citrus fruits such as limes or oranges or doing a mix of lemon and lime? These suggestions make a sumptuous yet refreshing change to a beautiful pudding. Also try adding 3 tablespoons of coconut with you mix in the flour for a tropical slant on the tradition favourite.

What puddings make you nostalgic during winter?
