The Queen of Puddings sounds so high and mighty, you expect something extravagant, but in fact, it has quite humble origins. It comes from a time when bread and milk were the main staple of our diet; it is therefore no surprise that puddings involving these two ingredients were made. There are several variants that have been around since the seventeenth century, such as the Welsh Monmouth Pudding, and later Manchester Pudding. The Queen of Puddings itself was named in honour of Queen Victoria, and made by one of her chefs. The bread and milk is raised up a bar with a meringue based topping, and when made by professional bakers can look very regal indeed. I can't do regal, but I can do bead and milk. It may not look as spectacular as one made for Queen Victoria, but is definitely a taste of home. Based on the brands I used,each portion should be about 123 calories.
