It's another week of the Great Bloggers Bake Off, inspired by the Great British Bake Off, and another week with things which I've never even eaten before, let alone baked! The themes for this week were suet pudding, choux pastry and three different types of pastry. I decided that I would make suet pudding as my parents were visiting for the weekend and I knew that they would help me out with the eating of it.
I had never bought suet before so I had to ask some fellow baking bloggers where to find it in the supermarket (in the baking aisle as it turned out). I went for vegetarian suet as it sounded slightly more appetising.
A quick Google turned up a simple recipe for treacle pudding which you can find here - Treacle Suet Pudding. I didn't much fancy trying to steam a pudding, and fortunately this one was made in the microwave. It was incredibly easy to make and tasted delicious when served with custard. So easy to make in fact that I know I'll be making it again. This week, the challenge for me wasn't so much about the baking part but the fact that I've tried something new which I never would have made otherwise.
I am once again linking up with the inspiring Crazy Kitchen and Mummy Mishaps for the Great Bloggers Bake Off. So many bloggers are joining in, and baking some wonderful things!
