The steamed sponge, laced with dates and topped with buttery toffee source won 47 per cent of votes in a poll to find the top pud. The chocolate eclair was second with 39 per cent and Apple crumble came third with 38 per cent.

They were followed by chocolate mousse, millionaire’s shortbread, apple pie, strawberry cheesecake and lemon meringue pie, with Blackforest gateau and jam roly poly tying for tenth place.
