Charlie Bigham’s, creator of delicious ready-to-cook dishes, is launching its first range of ready-to-bake puddings, with five gloriously indulgent Proper Puds. Available exclusively in selected Waitrose stores from 6 February, Charlie Bigham’s Sticky Toffee Pudding, Sticky Ginger Pudding, Chocolate Fondant, Bread & Butter Pudding and Cherry Bakewell Pudding will all appear in the brand’s iconic wooden trays (RRP £5.50 for a 2-4 person serving).
Proper Puds are a natural next step for Charlie Bigham’s, whose premium pre-prepared meals, inspired by UK classics and world flavours, are already a trusted night-off from scratch cooking for foodies. Applying this expertise to puddings – meticulous ingredient selection, home-style recipes and small-batch cooking – is set to win Proper Puds the hearts, and stomachs, of the nation.
These first five much-loved classics are made with the choice ingredients found in a discerning baker’s pantry – Belgian chocolate shards, sherry-soaked raisins, cinnamon sugar and sweet cherry compote. With all the baking prep done for you – measuring, mixing, whisking and melting – the finished dish is a freshly-baked, indulgent and deeply satisfying pudding in just 15-20 minutes.
Designed to complement Charlie Bigham’s collection of over 50 savoury dishes, Proper Puds are a delicious slice of sweet nostalgia – just add a generous spoonful of thick cream or silky custard for the ultimate finish.
Baking and puddings conjure up happy memories of wonderful ways to round off a tasty meal, and we wanted to capture the essence of this excitement with Proper Puds. After receiving hundreds of customer requests for puddings, we know there’s a real appetite out there for traditional sweet dishes, though not everyone has the time or skills to make these just as they should be. Our Proper Puds aim to fill that gap in the most delicious way possible.
