I’m really passionate about desserts like Kentish pudding pie because they are some of the most threatened puddings in the UK – they should be on an endangered species list. Let’s revive these traditional classics because, let’s face it, we really love this type of pudding. Why do we go out to restaurants and enjoy the best of British for a starter and main course, then have to select a Continental-style dessert? Why can’t we have a nice dollop of Kentish pudding pie and junket ice cream?

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g Rich shortcrust pastry, made using icing sugar to make it sweet
2 eggs
75g caster sugar
150ml double cream
250ml milk
100g ground rice
pinch nutmeg
1 1/2 lemons, zested and juiced
125g currants
icing sugar, to serve

To serve:

Quantity Ingredient
Junket ice cream
Roasted crab apples

Method

  1. Make the pastry.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC. Line six 9cm tart tins with the pastry and blind-bake for 10–12 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly.
  3. Place the eggs and sugar into a bowl and whisk to combine.
  4. Place the cream and milk into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour onto the eggs and sugar and whisk. Return to the saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until just thickened, then remove from the heat.
  5. Whisk in the ground rice, nutmeg and lemon zest and juice. Pour into the tart cases. Sprinkle the currants over the custard.
  6. Place the tarts onto a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes until just set and lightly golden. Serve with the roasted crab apples, junket ice cream and a dusting of icing sugar.
