              'What's for Pudding?' is a question that has been asked around New Zealand dining tables for generations. A family will eat the main course and be satisfied, but the main event, the thing waited for with the greatest anticipation by all is, of course, pudding. In What's for Puddi...ng Alexa Johnston brings together the sweet delights that have graced New Zealand tables for generations. Hot and cold puddings, as well as all kinds of baking, became a significant outlet for the creative genius of countless New Zealand women. The excellent recipes that they contributed to community recipe books are the source of many of the puddings Alexa Johnston has collected here and, although some of the recipes are very old, they are all delicious. Puddings may have become an occasional treat nowadays but a beautiful dessert or a simple family pudding will provide the perfect end to any special meal. Lemon Delicious or Chocolate Fudge Pudding, Jam Roly-Poly, Apple Pie and Baked Apples, Fruit Flummery, Ice Cream and Jelly, Lemon Meringue Pie, Upside-Down Pudding, Spanish Cream, Rhubarb Crumble, Hot Fruit Sponge ...these simple family puddings - and Alexa Johnston's mouth-watering collection of recipes - have a universal and timeless appeal.
