About this recipe: A traditional pudding from West Sussex. Add sultanas or raisins to the filling to make Kentish Puddle Pudding. Warning: don't eat this if you're on a diet!
Used different ingredients. Replace the filling with 1 1/2 lb of cored, chopped dessert apples to make apple hat. - 27 Dec 2009
I reduced the quantities and chopped up half a lemon. I should not have done that. Parts escaped and were found again when eating!! My neighbour told me you are supposed to remove all the lemon and it is just there for flavour. - 03 Nov 2015
My mother always made this but with sultanas or raisins and she used to layer the butter, raisins and sugar through the pudding. We were told that it was called pond pudding because of the pond of dark sweet sticky goo that leaked out when the pudding was finally turned out onto a plate. I'm surprised we kids weren't all enormously fat! - 06 Nov 2012
