Please don’t ask me how a cake can end up with a name like Bee Sting. I can’t imagine anyone finding anything remotely positive with getting a bee sting yet the cake is absolutely delicious. It’s a strange world is all I can say – Ted 😉
Queen of Puddings is so worthy of its name, a pudding filled with lovely ingredients and crowned with a layer of soft chewy meringue. As you can see from this recipe, it is quick and easy to make, is comforting yet not heavy.
The bottom layer of the puddings is made from eggs, milk, sugar and breadcrumbs with a topping of meringue; fruit is added either in the base of the dish or between the base and meringue; the choice is yours.
Use a thick layer of jam, any fruit preserve, a compote of seasonal fruit, lemon or fruit curd – even marmalade. The variations of Queen of Puddings are endless. Enjoy
Queen of Puddings is also known as Monmouth Pudding and Manchester Pudding though these are ever so slightly different.
