- Perfect sharing desserts for the family
I’m a huge fan of The British Bake Off and Mary Berry the “Queen of Puddings”, so when I was asked to review her new desserts I was happy and looking forward to indulging my sweet tooth! Her two new desserts are a Luxury Summer Fruit Pudding and a Belgian Chocolate Brownie Pudding.
So first up, the Luxury Summer Fruit Pudding with it’s lovely packaging. It’s chilled and really refreshing which makes it perfect to serve on a hot day or at a BBQ. If you’re serving it at a dinner party I’d put it in the freezer for longer than the 10 minutes it says before serving, as it was starting to melt and spread out when it was sat on my cake stand for 5 minutes. Either that or make sure you all tuck-in quickly! It’s very fruity and sharp so you don’t need to eat much of it to enjoy the rich taste, and it would go lovely with a dollop of cream. It would be a great way to finish off a summer meal by having something sweet and refreshing.
Now on to the Belgian Chocolate Brownie Pudding, which is apparently one of Mary’s family favourites! Mmm, I knew this would be my favourite before trying either of them! This was delicious and not too sweet and sickly, which I find some brownies are. This one was perfect and I could probably have eaten the whole thing myself! The pack says it serves 5, but I’d probably say it serves 4. It’s warm, rich and gooey with a light and delicate crust. The sauce it comes with is lovely too, and I think I’d probably serve it with a nice scoop of ice cream! Delicious!
The puddings are designed to be presented at the table, so they’re perfect for those family occasions. You could probably even try passing them off as your own as they look so homely and home-made.
I’d definitely pick up these puddings to please my guests around the table so I’d highly recommend you check them out the next time you’re looking to buy some desserts!
I was kindly provided these puddings for free to review, and as always, the review and opinions in this post are my own honest views. Please see my disclaimer for more information.
