It's what inside that counts


So I made my first Treacle Pudding. This has been a favorite of mine since I first tried some at Tea and Sympathy. It's super sweet, and a little goes a long way. I've wanted to make it for some time, especially since I got the T & S book with recipes. Since I've been on this baking binge I decided to give it a go.

It came out very well. The only problem is that it looks kind of bloopy One side of it is slightly dented looking. I don't feel bad about that - it's supposed to have a spongy pudding consistency. It's just not something I'd present on the table at afternoon tea. It has to be served separately. Never mind - I could eat it all myself! Don't expect any pictures of my latest production, though.

It was so hard to find the golden syrup to go with it - I ended up looking at the fancy grocery stores on the Upper East Side two weeks ago. It's pricey - $5 for a small can. It might be more worth it in future to simply visit Tea & Sympathy instead.

The house has that baking smell.

Hey Cathy
Never heard of treacle pudding. I guess I need to get out more. I would love to visit that tea shop you keep raving about. How is everyone? Sandy

I was at a typical sausage and mash lunch place near Liverpool Street and when she asked if we wanted dessert, I asked for treacle. LOL! She looked at me like I had two heads. She didn't even KNOW what it was and I really couldn't describe it. Yes, a trip to Tea & Symphony is needed...
