From that selection bakewell Tart (as baked in Bakewell), a good cheesecake (baked Polish) and a good bread & butter pudding, though the correct choice is blackberry & apple crumble (with custard), summer pudding & queen of puddings.

Lemon meringue pie and creme brulee beat everything mentioned there, like.

A good brownie would also be high in my own personal RANKINGS

I've got more Disky product

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

The only good cheesecake is baked Polish. None can compare.

I rue the day of crushed digestive biscuits.

Sadly, my local deli has stopped stocking it for sale by the slice. I think the original owners have retired back to Poland.

One of my best friends and former roommates was Cuban. He used to bring home flan his mom made.

Great stuff.

The secret to a great cheesecake base is to chuck some ginger nuts in with the digestives *taps nose*

The idea of enforced semolina consumption gives me something of a thrill, to tell you the truth.

I only very recently had a Manchester Tart and I have to concur

However I voted for old favourites chocolate sponge, apple pie and Bakewell tart but I'm good with just about on that list. I like puddings.

I'm not a Bakewell tart purist, I love the real thing but I'm also very happy with the Mr Kipling variety.

Lemon meringue pie has always been my absolute favourite. My grandfather, who was a cook, used to make a spectacular one.

Of the list I went for rhubarb crumble, trifle and apple pie.

I avoid a lot of the more traditional British puddings on here (although I've never heard of Manchester pie before) as I find them a bit stodgy.

My votes were for Bakewell Tart, Manchester Tart and rhubarb crumble.

I love anything with almonds/marzipan and Manchester Tart has a schooldays pull for me. Rhubarb crumble seems to me to be just about the perfect thing, especially when all the juice bubbles up through the edges of the crumble.

The right answer is Rhubarb Crumble.
