That delicious looking pudding was what I had yesterday at Galin. Peanut mousse with banana cake and caramel sauce. It was wonderful and inspired me to see if I could recreate the mousse. It was super smooth, mildly peanutty and a bit buttery. I asked the owner when...

Peanut butter and jam mug cake, mmm, too easy
I was inspired to try this pudding this evening by Skint Mum over on the Skint Dad blog who made a chocolate mug cake. DP is mad on peanut butter on toast at the moment, so I made this peanut butter and jam version. I used a large mug and put into it 2 tbslp sugar 2...
An outstanding chocolate roulade
This is a quality pudding, that really will serve 10. Lovely on its own, even better with a dollop of cream or ice cream.
Muscovado and mixed fruit pudding, with double cream, 32p
This is the pudding for the Christmas week 2014 plan. Plump dried fruits, rich muscovado flavours, double cream trickled over. Very naughty at 600+ calories, and very, very nice. I tested one with DP this evening, we shared, as calorific treats like this slip down...
10,000 steps and gooseberry crumble

Coffee semi-freddo, 26p each, and a chocolate version, 37p
Coffee yogort sounds a bit strange I know, but it tastes really good. I had a little after dinner this evening and it was delicious
A reprise on semi-freddo, and lots more flavour ideas
Remember this? Instant semi-freddo After dinner this evening, DP announced that he wanted a pudding. He was angling after a crumble, but I really didn’t want to make one. So I dug out a bag of mixed berries from the freezer, picked out all the strawberries and whizzed...
Muscovado and Red Fruit Cheesecake, 50p a serving with the fruit, 33p without
A no-bake cheesecake, topped with a fruit compote, or what you will. Very moreish, so I only make it in small portions!
Apples again – baked sponge with an apple base, and compote with raisin pancakes
apple sponge done in the microwave, and apple compote with mixed spice, served with raisin pancakes – yum
Oaty Apple Crumble, use foraged fruit and it’s even cheaper
Oats are a great addition to any crumble topping. This one is from a 7 day, £1 a day meal plan. Lots of ideas for other flavourings too
