Buxton Pudding


A sweet, thickened egg confection of variable form, baked (sometimes in pastry) and served with fruit or jam.

White 1932 gives a base of a dish covered in jam, the sides lined with shortcrust pastry, filled with a thickened (with flour or breadcrumbs) sugar, egg and butter mixture (sometimes with milk), baked.

Known at least since a record of a dinner given for the Mayor of Derby reported in 'The Derby Mercury' on Wednesday 4 November 1868 which included Mock Turtle Soup and Tipsy Cake as well as Buxton Pudding.

Original Receipt from 'The Dundee Courier' - Saturday 14 January 1939

Let it cool, then stir in 3 oz. butter, 6 oz. sugar, three well-beaten eggs, and the grated rind of one lemon. Pour into buttered dish, and bake for 2-hour a moderate oven.
