Johnny Shepherd is the artisan pudding master of The Pudding Stop and The Pudmobile in St Albans. He creates baking favourites using only the best local, seasonal and organic ingredients he can find.

After competing on THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF, Johnny decided to pursue his passion and talent for baking by bringing his grandfather’s old business back to life. Johnny now does a thriving trade and was shortlisted for the BBC’s Food and Farming Awards in 2012. Food critic Charles Campion said that ‘the pudmobile is a shrine to pudding’ and chef Valentine Warner declared Johnny’s custard tart was the best he’d ever eaten.

This new cookbook is full of family favourites; delicious puddings to bring back fond memories and guarantee that someone will lick the baking bowl clean. Indulge yourself with Proper Custard and Sticky Toffee Pudding, delight in a Lemon and Polenta Cake and evoke the warm comforts of childhood with a homely Bread and Butter pudding. Inspired by generations of British family baking, this is the perfect book for all of those who crave the tradition and nostalgia of classic puddings.

What's Inside

Read More Read Less


The former Great British Bake Off contestant knows a thing or two about puddings: his St Albans businesses, The Pudding Stop and the Pudmobile, do a roaring trade. Food critics and chefs have heaped praise on his confections. The photography alone in this book is mouth-watering, but the recipes themselves are rather brilliant too: accessible and imaginative, they mix family classics with more elaborate ideas, and are arranged by type: 'Sticky', 'Creamy', 'Refreshing, 'Chocolate'. Opening with a potted history of puddings and general pud-making tips, Shepherd also writes endearingly about resurrecting his grandfather's business. Moreish.
