As I can recall there were two main types of pudding in the 1965-68 era that I ate in Primary school; one was a sponge pudding covered in custard - again, I have hated custard for over 30 years as a result! The sponge was tasteless and almost impossible to swallow as I recall, hence the copious amounts of the aforementioned custard. I never ate it, but there was always someone who would eat mine for me!
The other dessert was semolina ( spelling?), or 'frogs spawn' as we called it, with a little bit of jam in the middle. I hated that then and still do!

No, sorry, school dinners put me off a lot of thing unfortunately.

BTW. I am not a fussy eater today and will eat, or try, just about anything, but the thought of those school dinners seems to make me lose my appetite somewhat!

Of course this was back in the days when you still had free school milk, which I also hated, and still do...........hang on, I sense a pattern emerging here.....

The semolina would have been some arcane type of bread pudding, as semolina is a wheat product(usually flour), or a type of wheat itself. I'd wager it looked like tapioca to some degree.

I am not sure about tapioca, but it was a sort of porridge type of dessert with lumps in it. As I said, we called it 'Frogs spawn', which describes it nicely!

It was either Tapioca or the 'how do you start a pudding race..?' favourite 'Sago'. One is toadspawn, the other frogspawn, but I can't remember which way round.

Sometimes, really rarely, maybe when there was a stand-in cook, we got a proper old fashioned baked rice pudding and it was really good, honest!
There was also a 'chocolate' version of the blancmange which I seem to remember as being fairly vile. We also used to get saute potatos which required armour piercing cutlery. And peas that were like little bullets.

Wow, flashback! Just remembered - pink custard - served with shortbread. We must have been hyper-ed up for anything after that...

Unfortunately we never had bread pudding at school.

Theere was one sort of hybrid between a milk pudding and semolina which I think was perhaps Cremola - isn't that a US brand?

We had bread n butter pud sometimes. With rock hard currants.

God yes the peas! Processed and awful. Ours weren't hard, just the opposite, they were more like mushy peas, probably having been cooked three days earlier! But they were processed, and guess what.... yep, I still hate processed peas! Awful taste, though peas are actually my favourite veggie after potatoes.

That is one thing that I do remember as being good..... At my secondary school, where they had their own kitchens, they cooked an awesome roast potatoe! Being a monitor, we got to help finish them off after everyone had been served and everything was cleared away!

I still love roasties !

Listening to you guys going on about British school food, I just had a thought.

The US has "adopted" cuisine from nearly every country on the planet. Except Britain.

Not surprising really, British cooking is supposedly one of the worlds five smallest books, together with...

German humour, Italian war heroes, the book of Jewish charities and Australian culture!*

*As told to me by a German friend!

That said, you can't beat good old roast beef, Yorkshire pud and roast potatoes, roast parsnips and peas. And don't forget the mustard and gravy!
