Have you ever tasted a real homemade custard pudding? And no, we don’t mean the one that comes from a packet, but a beautiful, trembling cream dessert made the old fashioned way with eggs, sugar, milk and cream.

In Quivering Desserts & Other Puddings you will find recipes for both classic puddings such as vanilla, almond, chocolate and wonderful contemporary versions such as salted caramel pudding with caramel popcorn and white chocolate pudding with jasmine tea. And much, much more.

Sounds difficult? It is not. A real pudding just requires a little time at the stove and some hours in the refrigerator. And the reward - a quivering cream artwork that makes children quiver and adults sigh.
