Korinne's comprehensive ranking of Dunfield puddings

We have had two great volunteers here this Summer, Nick and Korinne! When having the chance to do so, Korinne has been sharing her story through her blog. It's worth keeping an eye on this for new stories, and definitely worth a read! - https://morethanatouristblog.wordpress.com/ 

Below is her comprehensive ranking of Dunfield puddings! I had to share it on here because I think it's great!! however I would like to add, Dunfield's cookies should definitely reached top #3!!! 


 

If you have ever spent time at Dunfield House, you know that mealtime is an integral part of every day. Everyone has their favourite meals, but more important are the pudding. (And by pudding I mean dessert). When I first got to Dunfield, I was enthralled by the various sweet treats at the end of each meal and since then I have developed an opinion about the best of the best puddings. For your benefit and enjoyment I have decided to share my rankings with you.

#10 – Arctic Roll

While these ice cream treats are a favourite of kids that come to visit Dunfield, there’s just something about the cake roll part of it that I personally don’t love. On a hot day (lol) they would probably be nice!

#9 – Chocolate Chip Cookies

Don’t get me wrong, chocolate chip cookies are one of my favourite treats, but with all the other amazing options, it gets stuck in the #9 spot!

#8 – Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Sauce

I know, I know, there might be a riot that this pudding is so far down my list. But, what can I say? *Shrugs Shoulders*

#7 – Jam Sponge and Custard

Jam sponge and custard is a pudding that has really grown on me since I have been at Dunfield House. Coming from the land of corn syrup (America), jam sponge and custard seemed super bland. However, my taste buds have adapted and now this British delicacy is climbing the ranks of my favourites.

#6 – Apple Crumble (and custard)

I am all for anything with crumble and custard being mixed – that’s all I have to say. The apple part is just a bonus.

#5 – Chocolate Brownie and Ice Cream

The Dunfield House brownies are some of the best in the world and you can quote me on that. That’s all there is to be said.

#4 – Lemon Cheesecake

I have only had the lemon cheesecake a few times, but it earned the #4 spot fairly quickly. There’s nothing like the crisp flavour of lemon in the summer months.

#3 – Banoffee Pie

Anyone that has had the sweet toffee and banana pudding cannot dispute the bronze medal being awarded to Banoffee Pie. (Unless they think it should be higher on the list.)

#2 – Flapjacks

I anticipate a lot of push back on the decision to award flapjacks the #2 spot. For many, they aren’t necessarily considered pudding. But, when the oaty, sweet goodness of the flapjack is put in front of me, I just can’t resist.

AAANNNNNNDDDDD

#1 – Sticky Toffee Pudding

Sticky toffee pudding is amazing in many ways, but it’s truly the toffee sauce that is poured on top that puts this dessert way out of the league of any of the others. Honestly, STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST DUNFIELD PUDDING AND I REFUSE TO HEAR ANY ARGUMENTS ABOUT IT.

Thank you for taking your time to read this ranking of my favourite Dunfield Puddings. Stick around to soon read about my favourite U.K. chocolate and also more important things like talking about Summer Camp and Primitive Camp!

Please feel free to leave comments and discuss with me my rankings unless you’re going to suggest that sticky toffee pudding shouldn’t be #1.
