It’s National Chocolate Pudding Day! Did you know that dessert
puddings can be traced all the way back to the 17th century? During that
time, a “pudding” was actually a very moist cake (similar to a
modern-day bread pudding or plum pudding).
The sweet and creamy confection we know and love today emerged in the
mid-19th century when an English chemist named Alfred Bird developed an
egg-free custard powder. This remarkable invention made it very easy to
produce a delicious pudding with the perfect consistency. Today,
pudding is a popular dessert all over the world.
