We’ve all had at least one fantastic pudding worth remembering in our lifetime. You don’t need any special occasions to enjoy a pudding, but nonetheless, you’ve got them anyway. The bright side to that is that while you’re making your own pudding, you might peep in to find your neighbour stirring up an interesting pudding flavour right next door for you to try out! Check out these six great pudding days that are celebrated in different places -
January 23rd is the Sticky Toffee Pudding Day. It’s also known as the National English Toffee Day. The actual origin of the recipe is still unknown. Though it’s considered to be developed by two Canadian air force officers during the Second World War. This delish is a modern British ‘Classic’. Here in Australia, we like to call it as the Sticky Date Pudding. This dessert is a combination of sponge cake and a toffee sauce. Note that, the unique character of the Sticky Date Pudding batter is mostly related to an American muffin. Usually, the moist cake, made with finely chopped dates, is served with Caramel Sauce.
June 26th is the Chocolate Pudding Day. Although the term 'pudding' is a British one, people all over the world didn't stop enjoying the delights of it just because of the name. Chocolate pudding is steamed and thickened with eggs which give a cake-like texture. National Chocolate Pudding day is celebrated in the USA. The funny thing is, although 'pudding' originated from Britain, they don't have a National Chocolate Pudding day like the USA! The history of how this day came about is tough to track back.
July 15 is the National Tapioca Pudding Day. This pudding tastes sweet and is made from milk and tapioca. People use cream or coconut milk as well instead of regular milk sometimes. The national Tapioca Pudding Day is celebrated worldwide so for those who won't have any plans set for July 16th, you might want to try making a delicious tapioca pudding and treat your friends and family. Tapioca is one of the purest forms of starch and is commercially available in a variety of forms such as flakes, pearls, coarse meal and sticks.
Butterscotch is a type of confectionery whose primary ingredients are butter, brown sugar and butter. Many other ingredients such as cream, corn syrup, vanilla and salt are part of the recipe which is used to make butterscotch puddings. This day is celebrated in the USA.
Many different cultures have their own variations of similar desserts all around the world and without these variations, people wouldn't try out new things and we would fall short on the new ideas that need to come up on desserts. Although different desserts are made on this day, it can roughly be said that October 14th is fit to be celebrated with scrumptious traditional Christmas puddings of different kinds. Cakes, custards, cookies or gourmet biscuits can be delightful in celebrating National Dessert Day!
The name makes you think that this day is celebrated in India, but it's actually not. National Indian Pudding Day is actually celebrated in England. Outside of England, Indian pudding is virtually unknown outside of England but there, it's a traditional dessert. Seventeenth-century English colonists brought hasty pudding to North America and transformed it completely. They substituted wheat with cornmeal which led to the name 'Indian pudding'.
Most of the days are celebrated only in specific countries but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate them as well. Try making your own dessert, go out with people and have fun trying mouth-watering desserts somewhere great.
