Bloomers Original Bakewell Pudding® – The History
There are many stories about the birth of Bloomers Original Bakewell Pudding® and it is something we are researching in an attempt to discover the truth about how this local favourite came to be.
What we know so far, or at least what the various stories agree on, is that this famous delicacy was first discovered by accident at The Rutland Arms.
It is said that the landlady, Mrs Ann Greaves, was planning the evening menu for her guests and this was to include her favourite pudding of the time. However, when it came to creating her beloved pudding, the cook did not follow the instructions correctly and the version she created became the Bakewell Pudding.
The response to the new Bakewell pudding was so positive that it became a new recipe that she had her cook continue to make in place of her previously favourite pudding.
There is an excellent history of the pudding written by Paul Hudson who is Mrs Greaves great-great-great grandson which can be purchased at the shop. Otherwise you’ll find more detail here: Bakewell Pudding – The Truth Behind the Myth
