The Great British Bake Off Can't Have Any Pudding If It Doesn't Eat Its Meat

Let's hope the Pudding Week creations aren't the texture of bricks in the wall.

It's a very British Bake-Off indeed, with "puddings" that had us scrambling to translate into American. Hear us talk about all the spotted dick on this week's Two Spotted Dicks podcast!

Speaking of "very British," these steamed school puddings all look pretty mushy and unappealing to our North American eyes, even the ones the judges claim are perfect...which James's is not.

Julia's looks pretty nice, and very cake-like.

"NO KILL I!"

Lots of us would probably like to play doctor with Steven, but this is ridiculous.

Channel 4

He uses it to inject his compote into the pudding, though, which is lovely.

Channel 4

Yes, Kate, because the first thing we all think of when we think of Mr. Darcy at the lake is TEA.

Channel 4

Sure, Yan.

Channel 4

Leave the jokes to Noel and Sandi, Liam.

Channel 4

When you're confident with good reason but Paul mocks you anyway.

Channel 4

Also appealingly cake-like, but the presentation on the jam could be...anything but this?

Channel 4

When you can't hear the Technical critiques.

A lava cake should look like this.

Channel 4

Not like this.

Channel 4

And definitely not this.

These are not the classic English trifles I always had at Thanksgiving!

Channel 4

This has a lot of gelatin for our taste...

Channel 4

...but it looks amazing.

This was Danny's favorite thing of the episode. It mixes tropical flavors with chili!

Channel 4

More on the traditional side...

Channel 4

...but lovely.

Channel 4

Maybe James shouldn't have themed his trifle around missing the Silver Jubilee because he had chicken pox, considering how this episode ended for him?

Channel 4

Here's some detail so you can make an informed judgment on that.

Channel 4

Julia's was pretty traditional too...

Channel 4

Just kidding, it's full of goo! The judges are not thrilled, so our instincts about the looks of this are correct!

Channel 4

Don't disrespect Steven's trifle!

Channel 4

Seriously, don't.

Channel 4

Though they talk around it, Liam's trifle is inspired by getting high at uni and...

Channel 4

...it shows.
