    What an amazing dish the British summer pudding is – simplicity itself, and as perfect as a midsummer's day. The peaches or nectarines add a slightly different dimension to this version, a marvellous way of eating a nice large portion of ripe fresh fruit, not cooked at all so as to retain all its nutrients.

    This is a delicious and super sweet sticky pudding. It's very important to finely chop the dates before soaking to obtain a smooth consistency. This recipe is for a 20 cm (8in) round tin.

    A very simple microwave sponge pudding in less than 15 minutes with a texture between a sponge and a steamed pudding. Flavour it by adding raspberry jam, treacle or golden syrup to the bottom of the final bowl. Serve hot with custard.

    Simple, fast and tasty bread and butter pudding - a winner!! The cinnamon is a lovely addition to this classic pudding.

    A classic sponge cake made into a chocolate sponge cake. This is completely fail-safe. Use a good quality cocoa powder (not drinking chocolate) for best results!
