PUD FOR ALL SEASONS

Based in Castlemaine, Pud For All Seasons has fast become renowned for Traditional and Contemporary Gourmet Puddings in Australia.  Handmade from the finest ingredients, these quality puddings are based on Grandmas’ original recipe.  Pud for All Seasons use Local Free Range Eggs and all Australian Dried Fruits wherever possible. Apples and Oranges are fresh from the grower and the bread is from their local baker and crumbed by them!  Australian Sugar and Real Australian Butter are the only sugar and butter allowed in our kitchen!

Pud for all Seasons was founded in early 2004 by Karen Kelly.  This stay-at-home mum independently moved to Castlemaine from Melbourne and was looking for a “little” part-time business to satisfy her passion for fine cuisine, and to exercise her creative mind.  A selection of fine puddings was the inspired result.

An extensive range of flavoursome puddings and sauces allow these delicious desserts to be enjoyed all year round.  Some of the favourites include Double Chocolate & Orange with Cointreau, Date and Butterscotch, Cranberry and White Chocolate, Traditional Plum Pudding and Gluten Free and Dairy Free versions as well.

All puddings are attractively packaged in fabric with themed ribbons – making them a suitable gift item too.

We make them just like Karen’s Grandma used to, just a few more than she used to make!
