Sweet choice: 10 best ready-made puddings
If you’re cooking midweek, give yourself a break and pick up a delicious pud – your guests will never know the difference
Tuesday 04 March 2014
Think of this as the cheat’s guide to perfect puds. Let’s fact it – for many of us, there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to make puddings. For others, desserts just never seem to quite work. The mousse doesn’t set, the strawberries go soggy or the crumble doesn’t, well, crumble.
If any of this sounds familiar, take heart from the fact that while there are a lot of really bad desserts on the market, others taste just as good as anything home made. So, with options ranging from Betty's Passion Fruit Torte to Waitrose’s Seriously Sticky Toffee Sponge Pudding, dessert can be dinner’s happy ending once again.
