Desserts of The British Empire

roxlet | May 18, 2009 01:35 PM

We are giving a dinner party on Saturday night -- the foods of the British Empire. It's a way to cook lots of different things that are all thematically related. In this case we'll be visiting Britain, India and Hong Kong for a four course dinner. I am trying to come up with a suitable dessert. At first I thought that I would do summer pudding, but it's too early for currants and although I know I can make it with raspberries, blackberries and strawberries, I'd rather do a really authentic one. It's still not off the table, but I would like to come up with some other ideas. I want the dessert to be plated individually, so I don't want to do anything, like a pie or cake, that has to be cut up to be served. I thought about individual sticky toffee puddings, but that seems way to wintery for Memorial Day weekend. Help!
