Re: What is your favourite pudding that your mother used to make for you?

Mum's rice pudding with sultanas followed by apple & blackberry crumble.  My girls aren't fond of rice pudding so I never make it these days but I think apple crumble would be one of their favourite puddings that I make.

Falcon, don't get me started on school dinner puddings  dribble  yummy

Re: What is your favourite pudding that your mother used to make for you?

wave Hi Georgia!!

My late Dad who was assisted by my late Mum, would make delicious winter puddings i.e. rice or bread & butter puddings & the golden syrup or lemon steamed puddings & apple crumble!!  yummy

Tho! my favourite (not a baked pudding sorry) would be just simply...rhubarb picked from my fathers garden - which was just boiled/stewed & served with hot bubbly custard!!!!  yummy

One time as a teenager tho...I was asked to keep an eye on the pot full of rhubarb & forgot....& so the rhubarb was burnt to the pot  yikes  ...hmm, I was in trouble that day  whistle

As mom worked, I don't remember many desserts except at Christmastime.  I started baking at a young age with disasterous results!  I am a bit better at it now.....lol

My mother didn't cook so I loved staying with my grandfather, particularly when his sister from the country was visiting, too.  She used to make delicious rice custard, with a few different variations.

My mother used to make the most amazing bougatsa!

That is too funny.. I just finished posting on a different forum about bougatsa and galaktobureko.
yummy  yummy   I didn't have the fortune of growing up with these fantastic things, but my wife and I go out of our way occasionally to go to a greek bakery for them or make them ourselves .


My mom, didn't make a lot of sweets while we were growing up, but I always enjoyed her holiday baking.   Christmas was lemon cookies, and crescent cookies( this used a special type of ammonium bicarbonate that she had to buy at the pharmacy). Summer would be strawberry shortcake. Fall was pies for thanksgiving  . Apple and pumpkin.  (No minnie, it was not pumpkin tart)

Tell us more....what is "bougatsa!"

Terry

It's yummy!  Basically it's a creamy custard that is placed in between sheets of phyllo dough or wrapped in phyllo dough.  It's most often eaten as a breakfast item but I'll eat it anytime.  Served warm and sprinkled with powdered sugar and cinnamon.
