Vote for your fav Retro Dessert

Hi

I recently had an old favourite dessert .. BAKED ALASKA ... so I though i'd ask which 70's pudding should be revived, updated and made popular again!

Lets eat !

Treacle Pud please

There used to be a brand of treacle/chocolate/strawberry pudding that came in a tin and you steamed it for 30 mins until blistering hot! Ohh, the pans that got ruined after boiling dry on the hob

You can't whack a good homemade suet pudding though!

i think they always look 'for one' - but with custard they are more filling than you expect
