Puddings come in all sorts of varieties. In fact, you’ll find puddings in most cultural cuisines. You’ve got your savory kinds – the steak and kidney, Yorkshire and black puddings… as well as the dessert favourites like rice and bread puddings, plus the creamier banana, chocolate and vanilla types.
Sharon Bond, a member of the Nooaitch First Nation and owner of the café, recently revealed her recipe for the restaurant’s popular Berry Bannock Pudding.
The simple recipe – milk, sugar, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla – gets its First Nation flavourings from the café’s day-old bannock, a traditional Aboriginal frybread, as well as from sweet and tart seasonal berries.
The light and airy dessert – topped with whipped cream – has even earned accolades on The Food Network’s “You Gotta Eat Here”, a TV show following “a quest for Canada’s most delicious, mouthwatering, over-the-top comfort food.” To taste one of these puddings you can visit Kekuli Café in Merritt or Westbank.
