I am absolutely hopeless at cooking puddings, but I do love eating them. The ubiquitous Tarta de Santiago – a beautiful almond-flavoured cake that is eaten as a pudding — is absolutely scrumptious when freshly baked. I was given this recipe by Señor Hernandez, who runs a great restaurant called Casa Peregrino, about 15 miles outside O Grove, on the Galician coast.
