Just in case you’ve overlooked the queenly clue in the title of my recipe, I recreated this splendidly simple, yet rather indulgent wartime dish purely for the delectation of Queen Elizabeth II! After all, it is Her Majesty's most favourite afternoon teatime treat, or anytime treat as my research revealed.
Oh, and before it completely slips one’s mind, Miss Windsor bids Her Majesty an extremely jovial “official” birthday of Trooping the Colour – this year it takes place on Saturday the 13th June 2020.
Also, following the incredibly sad news of the one and only Forces' Sweetheart who passed away at the grand ol' age of 103 on the 18th June 2020, I hereby dedicate this recipe to the magnificent DAME VERA LYNN.
Drum roll please……. accompanied by the royal salute, I hereby present Royal Windsor Pudding!
I say, before we further our acquaintance; you may observe a one-off performance of the “royal wave” – which must be reciprocated with a curtsy or bow. Now the formalities are over and done with, one bids you a rather jovial welcome to the royal household of Miss Windsor’s Delectables – How do you do?
Darlings, one must admit, Miss Windsor has gone a bit pudding mad, of late! You see, following the success of Mrs Beeton’s Spicy Suet Carrot Pudding, one felt compelled to have another go at recreating a Victorian slice of food history, or in this case, a Georgian slice of food history! And may I remark, if a recipe was written between 1795 and 1837, many folks refer to that period of the Georgian era as “Regency”, thus Regency cookery.
Now you may already know, that our beloved sovereign – HM Queen Elizabeth II - is a "chocoholic" of the incredibly ardent and incurable kind. And so is Miss Windsor's beloved grandmother Josie who just so happens to share the same birth year of 1926 with Her Majesty.
So, with this in mind, and with a twist of zingy orange, I recreated the frightfully fabulous Chocolate Cream Roll to celebrate Her Majesty’s official birthday of Trooping the Colour - this year it takes place on Saturday the 13th June 2020.
Miss Windsor shall serve her queenly recreation to an assemblage of guests at her terribly splendacious afternoon tea party, in other words, a jolly good “royal knees-up”!
It’s an absolute pleasure to present Miss Windsor’s "spin" on a frightfully decadent and regal recipe fit for a QUEEN - Chocolate Queen Pudding! You see, I recreated this palate teasing, chocolaty kind of luxury bread pudding to celebrate our sovereign's "official" birthday of Trooping the Colour, which takes place on Saturday 8th June 2019.
And I must divulge darlings, that my beloved grandmother Josie and Her Majesty The Queen both entered this magnificent world during the year of 1926 – known as the roaring 20’s! And suffice to say, both ladies are of the greatest personage and have many things in common, one being they are "chocoholics" of the incredibly ardent and incurable kind – Oh, I say!
