The Pudsey Pud is intended for children to make at home and then sell at school and to family and friends to raise money for BBC Children in Need. In addition, AWT has asked his head chefs at Kew Grill, Windsor Grill and Windsor Larder to make Pudsey Puds for their customers with 25% of the proceeds going to BBC Children in Need. Antony is personally making the puds at The Greyhound, his classic country pub in Rotherfield Peppard, near Henley-on-Thames.
“The Pudsey Pud recipe is spot on for kids aged 4 to 104,” says Worrall Thompson. “It’s basically a muffin recipe with pureed apples folded in to give it a soft, gooey texture. The all-important spots for this year’s BBC Children in Need ‘Show your spots, let’s raise lots!’ campaign can be whatever you want – but I think blueberries, raisins or chocolate drops work particularly well.”
The recipe for the Pudsey Pud can be found at www.awtrestaurants.com.
“This super spotty recipe is simple for youngsters to download and make up at home,” says Carrie Green at BBC Children in Need. “We hope children and parents will show their spots by selling their Pudsey Puds to family and friends and hope that Kew Grill, Windsor Grill and The Greyhound customers will choose the Pudsey Pud dessert in aid of our cause.”
