Banana and coconut tart

I don't know if you saw my tweet when I accidentally ordered 80 bananas on my supermarket shop, but this was one of the puddings I made to use up them. This came from Greg Wallis' puddings book and it should have been laced with rum but I omitted that due to the kids. It was very tasty but you have to be a lover of coconuts and bananas otherwise this is not the pudding for you. It was also very big and would easily feed 6-8 people.

Felt fox and racoon

Just a quick one from me. I thought I'd share the felt fox and Racoon I made from an old issue of Mollie Makes. They will be perfect as a little Easter gift for my boys.

Quick pudding ideas - fruit fool recipe

Here is another quick pudding idea.
I normally always have a selection of frozen fruit in the freezer and some instant custard powder, so all I needed to buy was some cream to finish it off. Don't worry if you cant get the cream, it'll taste great without it.
To make it you will need
1/2 a punnet of frozen mixed berries defrosted.
1 pint of instant custard made up to the packets instructions.
Whizz the berries in a blender until smooth. It's up to you if you want to sieve to remove the pips.
Fold into cooled custard and pour into four serving dishes.
Leave in the fridge to set and add whipped cream to the top to serve.

Quick pudding ideas - easy fruit jellies

Quick pudding ideas - easy fruit jellies
I have said this many times when writing my blog, my family love a pudding. They will often be sat at the dining table after dinner expectantly looking at my for the next course. Sometimes, I don't have a lot of time to make desserts. o this is one that can be whipped up in the morning and left in the fridge ready to feed the hungry masses. 
All you need is a packet of vegetarian jelly, a small tub of mixed berries fresh or defrosted frozen ones, and some whipped cream.
Make the jelly according to the packets instructions, different manufacturers use different amounts of liquids and pour into four glass dishes. Leave to cool slightly and add the mixed berries to each dish. This means they will stay in the middle rather than sinking to the bottom.
Place in the refrigerator to set. When ready to serve, top with whipped cream.
