Cartmel Lemon Drizzle Pudding: Review
The lovely people at Cartmel Village Shop asked if I would like to be part of a team of Cartmel Village People and review some of their wonderful puddings. This time I am showcasing Lemon Drizzle Pudding. I love lemon drizzle cake, how clever to turn it into a pudding.
Remove the lid and you get an amazing aroma from the lemon zingy topping. Secretly dip your finger into the lemon lusciousness - yum.
All you have to do is pop the pudding into the oven for 20 minutes and the topping turns into a beautiful golden lemony syrup. Cut into slices and serve whilst still warm with a dollop of cream.
The buttery sponge is light textured and the topping is tangy and luscious. This pudding definitely has the feelgood factor, it's a little beauty and we loved it.
My husband thinks he is a pudding expert and has appointed himself as part of the Cartmel Village People (I don't think anyone will notice that they have an extra member). He says they really know what they are doing, do it well, and they are experts, he can't wait to try the next pudding.
The pudding serves 4/5 people, we ate half and the next day I reheated half the pudding on a plate in the microwave. The pudding is also suitable for home freezing.
Fans of Cartmel asked them for more varieties of pudding and this is one of the new puddings they have made for us all. You can buy the puddings online, Cartmel Village Shop based in Cumbria, Waitrose, Booths, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Fortnum & Mason and independent fine food shops.
Did you see my review of Cartmel Summer Fruit Pudding?
Thank you to Cartmel Village Shop and Marie for another fabulous pudding.
