Saturday Pudding.

I've seen on lots of American Blogs something called 'Saturday Sky'. Every Saturday, you take a picture of the sky and that's your post on Saturday. Just a picture. All very well and good if you have lovely scenery to go with your sky. And all very well if your sky is pretty. But here it would be very boring. Grey. Rainy. Grey with a few clouds (that are even greyer!) and sometimes very occasionally blue.

But I thought how much more fun it would be to do something a bit more, um, tasteful? So I hereby launch 'Saturday Pudding'. This is the one day of the week when I try and make pudding - something other than a yoghurt or apple or even banana and custard. Please feel free to join in if you wish but don't forget to tell me you're joining in! I want to see what people have for pudding at Monkee towers, or over in Maryland, in Tyne and Wear or even in Australia. Come on People, show us what you're making!


The first Saturday Pudding here is Lemon Cheesecake with chocolate scribble strawberries. There's a bit left if you fancy some. (Oh, and just incase you wanted to call it Dessert, they say Pudding at Buckingham Palace, and if it's good enough for Her Majesty, then it's good enough for me!)

Hello, I was sent here by a faithful reader. I am actually from Maryland in the USA and while I don't make puddings, I do bake cookies and muffins on Saturdays.

I must say your pudding looks delish :)

Our pudding are not as glorious as yours, Michaela. For instance, we have a classic ¨pudding chömeur¨ (literally ¨pudding for the unemployed¨) that consists mainly of a super simple white cake cooking on a bed of syrup made of brown sugar. There are many variations of the pudding chömeur. For instance, a bread pudding can replace the white cake. This is far from your somptuous cakes and biscuits. I could almost smell your extravagant and yummy triangular scones of the other day. ;)

Oh maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!!!! Do you have to post about such scrummy things????? I did make a "pudding of sorts" yesterday - 1 meringue nest, half a pot of low cal chocolate mousse and some frozen berry fruits (well they defrosted a bit!) - very yummy (to this starved diet girl) and only about 3 points!

I WANT THAT CHEESECAKE!!

Cheesecake is just about my favourite pud in the whole world. Especially when it looks as yummy as that one. I might try and join you for this next Saturday (the photos that is, I doubt there'd be any cheesecake left by then ;)).
