A few years ago someone asked me if I’d ever made a microwave pudding before. I hadn’t. They raved about it, how easy it was, how good it tasted and I thought it was worth a try – they even printed out the recipe for me. Somehow or other though, I never actually got around to making it. I suppose I thought it was cheating a bit. Microwaves are for heating up soup or making porridge in my little world and I usually feel if I’m going to make something, I should make it properly, not that I very often do make puddings or cakes so even a microwave pudding is adventurous for me.
