Yes I can’t get enough of these subscription boxes/services. I just absolutely love them all.
This one is a new one for me. Yes it’s a recipe/food type box of which I’ve had a few, but this is the first time I’ve had a pudding subscription box. It’s also the first one I have come across in the UK.
It’s called The Pudding post and just like the meal/savoury recipe boxes I was sent all I needed along with a recipe card to make a pudding. This is a monthly subscription and so a different pudding gets sent monthly.
This is pretty much how the boxes look. All the ingredients are pre-measured and then vacuum sealed which keeps everything really fresh and prevents squashing in transit. The vacuum packaging also means everything shrinks to fit in a smallish box.
For my box I got all the ingredients to make a Pear, Hazelnut chocolate torte with ginger biscuit base. If anyone had told me I could make this previously I would of laughed and said no chance! To look at the photograph of it, it looks quite difficult, but it’s fairly easy.
This pudding involved 3 stages of preparation. The biscuit base, the chocolate mix and the pear poaching. The instructions were really clear throughout and it really helped that everything came already measured. The only things that are not supplied by The pudding post are butter , eggs and of course the water.
This is the pudding prior to baking for 40 minutes.
And once baked!
I am quite impressed by my first attempt at this pudding. The pears are visible on top of the pudding. The top is firm and crumbly and inside is like a gooey brownie, soft, chocolatey and sweet. Ginger chocolate was used along with dark chocolate and poured onto a base of crushed ginger biscuits making it very gingerish. All the ingredients and flavours work really well together and it tastes amazing. My kids love it too.
The pudding post subscription is £14.85 a mine and will certainly give subscribers something to look forward to each month.
