Am I the only one who can't see the words fava beans without hearing Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter? That's who I needed inside my brain before I go to bed.
Well pudding is a term for dessert, so you could say "I'm making a cake for pudding".I'm having trouble wrapping my little American mind around the British version of pudding.
Here, it's a soft creamy dessert. Sort of a not so rich mousse. From what I've seen, the British version looks like cake. What is the difference between your cake and pudding? I'm so confused.
I spent a good portion of my morning googling English Christmas Pudding.
It looks something like what we call fruitcake. And I want some...now!
It is a steamed pudding and quite different to a fruit cake which is baked and served cold. Christimas pud is served hot with brandy (vegan) butter or custard or cream.
Oh yum...I'll have the Christmas pudding, please!It's not dissimilar to fruit cake in taste, just a bit moister and denser. Soak a fruit cake in alcohol and you've got a pretty good imitation.
Ooh how could I forget thoseAnd dont forget Yorkshire Pudding
Snap, I love Christmas cake but not pudding. I don't like alcohol in desserts, that's probably why.I never liked Christmas pudding, but I really like Christmas cake.....I'm not that keen on steam pudding in general, and I think the way those two are cooked is important.....plus I like marzipan and icing.

Puddings can also be something wrapped in a very dense case like suet (fat from animal liver), usually meat. That would be called a meat pudding.
You also have specific dishes like Christmas pudding and rice pudding which don't have a lot in common, so I don't know why they're both called puddings
To make matters worse, we have hot and cold puddings.
Thanks, I've now spent the day googling puddings.And dont forget Yorkshire Pudding
Lots.Any of them take your fancy?
This must be one of my favourites with butterscotch sauce and oatly cream drizzled over it.Lots.
The Christmas pudding looks much tastier than our fruitcake. Sticky toffee pudding sounds really yummy.
Treacle pudding looks good, but the name bothers me. I always picture octopus tentacles when I hear the name. Now, Roly-Poly pudding, that's a great name. It looks like our jelly roll cakes. I spotted a few chocolate ones also.
