Choose one of these old fashioned recipes and treat yourself to the taste of an authentic homemade pudding. These were Grandma's favorites, her best recipes.

And that's just a few!

Imagine: You will be able to make all these delicious comfort foods to proudly enjoy with your family and friends.

The History of Pudding

The speculative origin of puddings begins in man's distant past. Crude pudding-like dishes likely originated over open fires with the simple boiling of available ingredients. Before medieval times, they were mostly meat based, but with the coming of refined sugar, cooks experimented with sweeter combinations and found them tasty.

By the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, people were making sweet puddings of flour, sugar, fruits, nuts, and spices. These were either baked in pans or boiled in a sheep's stomach or in "pudding bags" made of cloth.

Elizabeth, herself, enjoyed serving elaborate puddings at her royal banquets along with an abundance of rich-tasting fruit pies and marchpanes (marzipan). In those days, sweets or sweetmeats were considered to be the essential part of any banquet or feast.

By the late 1700s, few puddings contained meat, and sweet varieties such as bread, rice, and lemon became forever popularized as desserts, along with the ever popular trifles. Many of today's favorite pudding recipes evolved from the earlier varieties once made in royal kitchens and crofter's cottages.
