Boxing Day bought pudding

I'm doing a decent main course and cba to make a pudding after doing Christmas Day. I did bought meringues, fruit, cream and also mini eclairs last year so can't do that again.
I could buy a cheesecake I suppose, but am not filled with joy at the thought. What else could I get, ideally from Tesco?

Pannettone? Yummy and Christmassy.

Why can't you buy the same as last year?
What about Eton Mess ?

Not sure what fresh fruit you'd want but there's frozen raspberries (and they do a really nice Mango coulis in tall thin bottles by the dessert wafers and stuff)


Loads of flavours of ice cream, do in small scoops with a melon baller then let everyone choose.
Sauce, fruit (bananas?) chocolate flake, cream?

I think cheesecake is quite heavy after a large meal.

Something light like lemon Merangue pie?

Meringue roulade - light and delicious! I may have to assess my freezer space and see if I can squeeze three one in

Make your on sundaes, get bags of chocolates eg buttons malteasers etc, toffee, choc and strawberry sauces, mini brownies or mini biscuits and squirty cream. All on table every builds there own to taste. Could even go crazy and pit some fruit out.

Do you have a Cook nearby? Theirs are the only shop bought puds I think are authentic enough for Boxing Day.

I make a really easy chocolate tart (chocolate, butter, eggs & sugar & teensy bit of flour, melted together & baked for 20 mins) which is better kept at least overnight. Can dig out recipe if helpful?

I've gone for sainsburys salted caramel pecan pudding!

Chewbecca I would love that recipe if you wouldn't mind?

I had the salted caramel pudding on Sunday, very nice it is too, be warned you only need a little bit, very rich!

Buy the same as last year, 3 years on the run makes it a tradition and in future years your dcs will be pissing off their Dw/h because it's not proper Boxing Day without eclairs.... smile
