  • An insight into Hunters Gluten Free Puddings

    One of our most popular desserts here at Greens is Hunters gluten – free sticky toffee pudding from Hunter’s Puddings. Created by Sarah Hunter in her own kitchen her gluten free puddings have won numerous awards such as ‘Cumbria Life’ magazines Best Pudding / dessert 20111/2012 and ‘delicious’ Magazines Best Gluten - free Sticky Toffee Pudding. Since starting the business in 2006 the gluten - free market has changed with more choices for those with a gluten - free diet.

    Our social media guru, Holly Goddard contacted Sarah Hunter to find out more.

    When did you start making your gluten free puddings?

    “Through my 20s whenever my friends and I got together for dinner we would each provide a course. I've always had a sweet tooth so I always bagged the dessert!”

    What is the process involved in making your puddings, is there a particular process involved?

    “We bake our puddings just as you would at home. We use specialist gluten free flour but apart from that we bake just as our grannies did! Nothing weird, just good quality, natural ingredients.”

    What do you enjoy most about making your puddings?

    “I've always enjoyed the creative process. When I was a child I was fascinated by how ingredients like butter, egg and flour, quite unappetising on their own, could be conjured into an amazing cake or dessert. That fascination continues to this day. I think the chemistry of it is just amazing.”

    Out of all your puddings which one is your favourite?

    “I couldn't choose one, that would be like choosing a favourite child! I think they all have their own attributes. I love going to Coeliac Fayres where we have the full range set up for tastings. Customers go from one to the next, oohing and aahing, comparing notes with their friends (and sometimes complete strangers!) deciding on which they like best. There's never an overall winner. Different puddings appeal to different people.”

    Has the business changed at all and is there anything exciting happening?

    “The business is forever changing and evolving, and the gluten free market has changed beyond recognition from when we first started back in 2006. In September we started working with a new wholesaler based near Reading. This is enabling us to supply many of the independent delis and farm shops in the South of England - an area we've had very little coverage in until now. Already they are opening us up to a whole range of stockists - big and small - who are new to us so that's very exciting!”
