Top 10 Puddings

Sometimes there’s nothing better than something sweet after a nice meal. If you’re like me and find it quite hard to choose that perfect pud, then take a good look at this top 10 taste bud tinglers:

1 - Banoffee Pie
Consists of a crushed-biscuit base, toffee/caramel, condensed milk, bananas and a whole lot of double cream blended to perfection. 

2 - Cheesecake
This can be made with various different fruits- the main two would be lemon or strawberry. This would also be made on a biscuit base, with a sweet, creamy topping. This topping would normally be flavoured with a particular fruit with fruit zests mixed and sprinkled on top.

3 - Pavlova (Eaton Mess)
Made of meringue, cream and fruit; this would tend to be lots of berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries etc.) Eaton mess is a quicker, smaller alternative to a Pavlova.

 4 - Apple crumble
This consists of crumbled pastry, sugar, cooked apple (other fruits/vegetables such as rhubarb), raisins & cinnamon could also be added.

5 - Cheese Board
This can consist of lots of different types of cheese; Brie, Camembert, Cheddar, Stilton just to name a few. These can be presented with a variety of crackers and biscuits, some grapes (red and white), various chutneys (such as onion to go with your cheddar) and a large glass of red wine!

6 - Frozen Yoghurt with Fresh Fruit
This could be considered as the alternative to ice cream- probably the healthiest option on this list, this is smooth, refreshingly sweet dessert.

7 - Profiteroles
This is a simple dessert which consists of pastry balls filled with cream, covered in warm, chocolate sauce. This also tends to be served with ice cream.

8 - Tiramisu
Made of sponge dipped in coffee, which is then layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone, then flavored with liquor and cocoa.

9- Ice Cream Sundae
A sundae is usually is usually served in a classic Sundae glass. It normally consists of ice cream, topped with either a sauce or syrup. Other ingredients would include fruit, chopped nuts, sprinkles and whipped cream.

 10 - Chocolate Gateau
A nice filling dessert that consists of cooking chocolate, almonds, egg, caster sugar, double cream and crumbled chocolate flake.
