That's it really, need a pud for 12 adults and kids that takes no more than 20-30 mins to make and which can be made in the morning before it is eaten.

Seriously dead simple as very short on time and out all day tomorrow and the evening too!

This lemon posset. Don't make the biscuits in the recipe, just serve it with some shop bought ones.

It really is a simple as boiling cream and sugar, stirring in lemon, and pouring into glasses to set, and it is absolutely sublime! I am always complemented on it when I make it and people never believe how simple it is to make grin

I did wonder about posset but thought needed longer than two hours so dismissed without actually checking. We should be able to manage that, just!! And I have 12 small bowls/ramekins. And yes, will but some "nice" biscuits to go with!

Thank you. flowers

What about a trifle? Make the night before and buy everything ready done.

I would do it first thing to give it the max time, but yeah they will be absolutely fine to do same day! Enjoy your party smile

Eton mess with bought meringues could be done in about a minute.

Nigella's chocolate and pear sponge. Storecupboard ingredients, easy to make and absolutely delicious.

Top quality ice cream. Put several small bowls on table containing things like chocolate buttons, crushed crunchies or Maltesers,flake, sprinkles,marshmallows, strawberries..everyone makes their own pud!

Was going to suggest Eton mess
Can use raspberries, strawberries and blueberries
I like the M&S meringues as well
Makes it really simple

Bananas, sliced in half lengthways, covered in brown sugar, chucked in the oven for five minutes served with ice cream. Best thing you'll eat all year 😁

Melt chocolate in hot cream, add liquor, stir in a box of maltesers, leave to cool.

Or, crush a packet of digestive biscuits, mix with a block of butter melted. Spread on a giant plate and fridge. Then mix together 2 cans condensed milk, 2 packets full fat cream cheese, juice and zest of 2 lemons (or 1 lemon and 2 limes, or a lemon, a lime and an orange), whisk until they go thick, pour over the buttered biscuits.

Or nice cheese and crackers plus fruit.

Bread and butter pudding - that morning butter and layer the bread, prepare the custard sauce, then pop in the fridge. Cook for about 30 mins when needed.

I add banana slices and chocolate chips to mine.

NattyTile Fri 04-Nov-16 20:27:47

Or if you fancy hot stuff, multiple packets of frozen berries plus chopped apples (or just loads of chopped apples with cinnamon), giant crumble. Bake it when you sit down to eat, serve with clotted cream ice cream.

delias chocolate bread and butter pudding best made the day before - even better for time saving,

Buy pain au chocolat. Rip them up. Put into a tray and cover all the gaps. Put chocolate buttons in. Pour over ready made custard. Bake for 20 mins.

Instant chocolate bread and butter pudding.

You lot are amazing!! Thanks. DD is actually doing the making so we will pour/pore (sp?) over these ideas tomorrow.

Pavlova is easy

anonymousbird Fri 04-Nov-16 21:14:21

We love pavlova but I may just be short of time. I need to be able to assemble the pudding in less than half an hour on Sunday morning and leave to one side/ in fridge as the oven will have the pork in for six hours!

Google waffle Berry pudding.
It's essentially a bread pudding but quite light.
It's a pampered chef recipe so it will tell you to use gadgets you don't have but it's the easiest thing in the world.
My 6 year old could do it.

Bread and butter pudding

A trifle. Using shop bought luxury custard. The only real jobs are cutting, spreading With jam and soaking lady fingers (takes minutes) chopping the fruit (I don't use jelly, just fresh bananas and strawbs) and whipping the cream. Then assembly.

Sorbet served in a frozen, carved out citrus fruit can be prepped in advanced.

Black Forest Trifle

Choc chip cookies in the bottom of a dish/dishES
Sprinkle with frozen fruits of the forrest
Pour over blackcurrant jelly with added brandy - leave to set
Melt chocolate & a little brandy into warmed tinned custard & spread over the jelly & cool
Whisk cream with baileys & spread over trifle
Crush chocolate flakes & cover top of trifle

Its fine made the night before, good for kids & adults if you dont overdo the alcohol--
a large 10/12 serving one would probably need 3 packs of jelly, 2 tins of custard, 2 large whipping cream, half box of frozen fruits of forrest, a pack of cookies & 5/6 flakes, but will depend on your dish/dishes

Old fashioned rice pudding - cooked in the oven ( along with the pork!)

Cheesecake(s). Any recipe, but basically...

Crushes digestives + melted butter as crust

Cream cheese + whipped cream + lemon juice + sugar + vanilla for filling.

Takes about 10 mins to make. Refrigerate for 6 hours. Serve with fruit
