Bakewell Pudding

The ingredients to this famous dessert is still Rutland Arms best kept secret.

The Bakewell Pudding originated through a mistake by the cook at The Rutland Arms. A Strawberry Tart was ordered for the guest and instead of stirring the egg mixture into the pastry, the cook poured it over the strawberry jam. The pudding was so well received by the guest that the recipe became recognised as the Bakewell Pudding.

As with any traditional recipe, there are bound to be many different versions, especially if the original recipe is a well guarded secret.
