Damnit you made me hungry! Great quiz
Sep 26th, 2012 at 19:06 GMT
I've gained weight just taking this quiz!

Please accept Egg custard (Egg custard tart) yum yum
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:18 GMT
Surprised to see creme brulee on there! Why's it got a French name if it's British? The Sussex Pond Pudding looks SO much nicer than my soggy effort!
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:21 GMT
How about Brown Betty as well, and Eve's Pudding? You've made me long for proper trifle soooo much now by the way :)
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:37 GMT
I've never heard of black cap pudding and couldn't figure out what fruit was in the fool but otherwise a yummy quiz. If you change anything could you put Bakewell tart in :-)
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:40 GMT
@Flick: I'll add that in now!
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:47 GMT
@emmafrisbee: the English version of creme brulee was called 'burnt cream' or 'Trinity cream'. The dessert was invented in France, but has been used in Britain for centuries, so I'd class it as British by now as well as French. Just like apple pie was invented in England but is now strongly linked with America (hence the phrase 'as American as apple pie')

Also, I did consider putting in Brown Betty and Eve's Pudding, but I had difficulty finding decent, clear pictures of them.
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:52 GMT
@Wren25: I didn't think many people would have heard of black cap pudding, but decided to put include some lesser-known puddings in addition to common ones, to provide a bit more variety in the quiz. I considered including Bakewell tart, but there's two main types of that and I reckoned that whichever image I used, someone would complain that it didn't look like the other sort! Also, I guessed the fruit might be a little hard to guess re. the gooseberry fool, so it should accept just 'fool' or 'fruit fool'.

Good quiz, a couple that i hadnt heard of (even as a brit), and a nice selection. Right i'm off to buy some trifle
Sep 28th, 2012 at 10:41 GMT
Hey I just found a recipe for the pudding I'd never heard of - should read my recipe books more closely especially as I love blackcurrents :-) Off to do some baking now....

Is a jelly roll the same thing as a jam roly-poly....?
Sep 30th, 2012 at 10:33 GMT
@mdalloway: no, it isn't, although I agree they do look similar. A jelly roll (or swiss roll, as they're called over here) is a variety of cake. A jam rolypoly isn't cake, it's a flat-rolled suet pudding.
Sep 30th, 2012 at 19:10 GMT
@triplet_3: That is *very* good to know -- you Brits and your suet! haha

Where's spotted dick? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotted_dick
Oct 1st, 2012 at 06:49 GMT
@SaulTaylor: oh my goodness, I didn't realise I'd left out spotted dick!! I really did mean to put it in. :( Oh well, too late now.
Oct 5th, 2012 at 17:36 GMT
Great quiz! Please accept swiss roll (even though it is called SWISS roll)
Oct 5th, 2012 at 19:25 GMT
@issami143: it's a jam rolypoly, not a swiss roll. Despite the visual similarity, they're actually completely different desserts, as I mentioned in a comment above.
Oct 5th, 2012 at 23:13 GMT
I'm not sure about classifying hot cross buns as a dessert...!
Oct 6th, 2012 at 09:42 GMT
That looks more like a crepe than a pancake.
Oct 6th, 2012 at 11:45 GMT
@drowningbarbie: in Britain pancakes are very similar to crepes. They look exactly like the image in this quiz, and are traditionally eaten for dessert on Shrove Tuesday with white sugar and lemon juice.
Oct 6th, 2012 at 19:55 GMT
Yeah what americans call a pancake we call a drop scone, same way you call our scones a biscuit Great quiz made me hungry :)
Oct 29th, 2012 at 07:59 GMT
All good! By the way, I'm Australian and we have scones too, with jam and cream, YUM!
Mar 22nd, 2013 at 21:08 GMT
I've made a few changes to the quiz, to take out a couple of things that on reflection aren't really puddings/desserts and one dessert that is as French as it is British. I've replaced creme brulee, Eccles cakes and hot cross buns with spotted dick, baked apples and Bakewell tart.
Mar 23rd, 2013 at 16:59 GMT
Also, I realised that one of the images was on Eve's pudding not apple Charlotte, so I changed that as well.
