A cup filled with pudding is commonly referred to as a pudding cup. Different pudding cup recipes can be either sweet or savory. It originated in the United Kingdom centuries ago and has since spread to the rest of the world. Usually a pudding cup is served as a dessert and is made of dairy based products. Pudding cup recipes use a variety of ingredients like flour, bitter, eggs, cereals and nuts to come up with a solid mass that can be then baked, boiled or steamed as per the customerâ€™s individual preference. The best part is that a pudding cup can also be served as a main course when boiled. Now days, creamy pudding are also popular and consist of sugar, milk, gelatin, eggs and rice. These are usually baked and are served chilled. Sometimes, this food item is also referred to as custard; though the terminology is not very well known.
