Easy Pudding Recipes

Puddings have come a long way from just being plain ol’ meat sausages, which is what they were back in the 17th century when they were made using encased meat and looked more like a sausage ring. It was somewhere around the middle of the 19th century that a sweet pudding similar to what we eat today was created. And if you have ever heard about the odd-sounding ‘Black Pudding’ and wondered if it was just a chocolate pudding gone bad, boy were you wrong! British native black puddings were actually blood sausages made from pork blood and oatmeal. Yes, you read that right. In fact, the first mention of black pudding dates back to 800 BC, in Homer’s classic The Odyssey and it was also said to be one of the favourite dishes of England’s monarch, King Henry VIII.

Doesn’t sound tempting though, does it? Fret not sweet addicts, as these are things of the past. Modern day puddings are yummy desserts made from cream, eggs, fruits and a whole lot of other ambrosial ingredients that blend together to make creamy delicacies. Besides common variants like vanilla and chocolate, there are some extremely interesting recipes made by bakers and chefs in India as well. And since we aren’t a tease when it comes to food, here are some sinful yet easy pudding recipes you can use to make a masterpiece at home.
