Can you get more British than Blackcurrant Queen of Puddings? Queen of puddings is famous dessert made with a custardy breadcrumb base topped with jam and meringue. This dessert originated in the 1700s but I am giving it a modern twist today by using brioche breadcrumbs instead of the usual stale white ones.

Traditionally, Queen of Puddings is made in a large dish but I like to divide it up into four individual pie dishes. I pipe the meringue on top of each in elegant swirls so it looks good enough to serve to the Queen of England!

To make Blackcurrant Queen of Puddings, you will need the following ingredients:
