Who remembers school puddings?

Eugene Hughes… Chocolate crunch and custard was sooooo good.

Mick O’Dowd… That was my fave! My Mum tried everywhere and everyone to get hold of a recipe for it! She did but it wasn’t quite the same. Custard was also a fave with many seconds. I call it institutional custard.

Allyson Breeds… “Tea leaves and Dripping” I don’t think I would like it now though, much too sweet

Julie Findlay-jones… Chocolate sponge chocolate sauce

Roger Simmonds… How about frog spawn i quite liked it😁

Jan Warren… Yuck!!

Trisha Ann…  I still like it now

Liz Dees Dianto… Chocolate crunch and pink custard yum

Jan Warren… I actually got the chocolate crunch recipe from one of the school dinner ladies so my mum could make it for us!!

Mick Turner… “Lovely Grub!”

Jan Warren… Loved school puddings!!

Mark Randall… (This always prompts a list of ‘no, it was brilliant ‘ ) ,but …
At junior school such was my loathing of Gypsy Tart, my Mum wrote a note excusing me from eating this sludge ( though the accompanying apple was allowed )

Anita Brett-everest… I make that for Bryan

Peter Webb… Loved them although fifty years ago I remember their sago, semolina, tapioca and rice pudding with brown skin

Wendy Weaver… Didn’t have school dinners after I was about 7 or so when the school secretary (who was my cousin) had a large snail in her cabbage so i missed the puddings

Alan Pepper… Now you’re talking ! What about Jam Sponge with Coconut topping and Custard ? That was my favorite at Junior School .

Lyn Humphrey… There was always more custard than was required…… Mind you, chocolate tart & ‘cream’ was a good one. Never had it frequently enough, though.

Jan Deane… Yes loved the jug of different flavoured custards to go with the sponge puddings – chocolate , strawberry, mint – and also the pink rice pudding. All delicious!

Will Cornell… Is this what they served in your school cafeterias? Then it’s official. The Brits definitely have more class than we do. Our school cafeteria kitchen would have a baseball bust a window and fall into a pot of chili and the cook would just keep stirring….and smoking her cigarette with an ash about 3 in. long.
