Queen of Puddings

Give your dessert a clever name – and tell us about your recipe.

Raspberry Queen of Puddings

What was the biggest surprise during your baking journey? Did you use any unconventional approaches? What did you learn along the way? Tell us about it!

I have made jam, custard and meringue before, but before the show, I had never heard of Queen of Puddings (which puts all three together). My pan was a bit smaller than the recipe called for, so the custard took longer to bake since it was thicker. I enjoyed piping the meringue, and it cooked perfectly. The custard was a little watery at the bottom, but it was cooked nicely.

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

I made homemade raspberry jam with raspberries from my parents' home in Manitowoc.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
