Unfortunately had to make this on short notice, so didn't have time to check against other recipes. The pudding was flat and tough. Barely rose at all. I was a little concerned at the time that there was no liquid other than the eggs. Having now looked at other recipes they all call for milk, so not sure if this was left off accidentally

I watched this show too and this is great! I am so happy someone posted this recipe as it is soooo easy and fail proof. My 6 year old loves this with cream, so do I! Thanks for posting Rosie.
