pumpkinpudding (3)Look at the colours! This is so colourful and beautiful dessert. Pumpkin is sweet and buckthorn is sour and altogether you receive delicious and amazing dessert. I added some black currants to get more colour and flavours.

The pudding is soft and airy and fluffy like a cloud!

  1. Looks and sounds appetizing but accessing buckthorn, of which I have heard but never seen, might just present a wee bit of difficulty ! Häid pühi suitsevast Ida Austraaliast . . .
