Question: What do you get if you combine double cream, clotted cream, milk, butter, eggs, sugar, flour, cocoa, ginger, and chocolate with a few good friends? Answer: A Pudding Party.
Clare and I have decided to be more social, but to do it in our own quirky way. We made a selection of puddings (and biscuits), and our friends brought some more. Tom brought a chocolate fountain which really stole the show — just about everything else was dipped into it, including one of my cheddar and gram flour biscuits (apparently not a successful combination). Partway through the evening my brown bread ice cream made a showing (this time with demerara sugar rather than soft brown sugar), and went down well.
Unfortunately I forgot to take any photos until half the guests had left. Pictured above:
