Who needs a reason to make a delicious dessert? One that goes down well after a scrumptious meal or just as a treat on its own. It’s even better if the ingredients to make something so tasty are readily available right out of your pantry. Here are some easy and affordable pudding ideas that are the perfect end to a meal, no occasion required.

Bread pudding

The simple combination of bread, milk, eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla essence and salt makes a dessert that’s warm, comforting and absolutely delicious. If you have leftover fruit such as berries or apples on hand, they are a fantastic addition. Add some cinnamon for a spicy twist.


It may only require three ingredients (butter, sugar and flour) but the flavour of shortbread is anything but dull. Sweet and buttery with a snap that’s unmistakeable. Enjoy them with a warm beverage or topped with whipped cream and marinated fruit. Canned fruit works perfectly for a shortcake dessert. It’s the perfect pantry cookie to turn into a dessert or to keep as an after-dinner delight with a warm cuppa’.

Peanut butter fudge

Fudge is a firm favourite for adults and kids alike, especially for those with a particularly sweet tooth. This twist on classic fudge adds salty peanut butter for a slightly less sweet but just as enjoyable pudding. For a fun spoof on peanut butter and jam, you can add a swirl of your favourite flavoured jam to the top of the warm mixture before you put it in the fridge to set.

Fruit crumble

Fresh or canned, if you have fruit on hand and want a delicious and super simple pudding to try, then this one is for you. The fruit filling can be topped with a mixture of equal parts flour, sugar and butter. Simply freeze the topping, grate it over your fruit and bake – its that simple.
