Last minute New Year Puddings

 A New Years Party is a good time for a show stopper pudding. But if like me you have left it to the last minute here are a few of my quick and easy go to puddings, that also look impressive - especially if you light a few sparklers and pop them on the top just before you serve.......

My Ginger and Orange Trifle - this is the ultimate of easy, but impressive pudding - no cooking required just buy ready made ingredients and assemble - takes ten minutes tops!

Make up a meringue, cover with cream and top with fruit, nuts or even lemon curd. Simple to make, impressive and as long as you have eggs, cream and something that will make a topping (even a jar or apricot conserve mixed with a little brandy will do!) your home and dry........

This last idea is just plan simple - melt some chocolate and dip strawberries into it! It looks fantastic, tastes brilliant, is easy to eat and dipped into vanilla cream you have a winner.

To make vanilla cream just whip up a pint of double cream with 2 tablespoons of caster sugar and 2 teaspoons of vanilla paste - vary the vanilla amount to your taste.

Have a very happy and peaceful New Year
