A famous dessert in the area of Snowdonia, in Wales, is the Snowdon Pudding. Cottages.com sent me the recipe and I had to try it as I just love anything that can be served with custard. It is similar to a steamed pudding, made with suet and of course this recipe is vegetarian. We love the Snowdonia area and the weather in Wales makes it easy to enjoy this wonderful dessert.
