Which is it: "Pudding", "Afters" or "Dessert"?
well that's a hard one, as pudding can be all 3, so depends on time, and of course what it is your eating.
apple tart is pudding if maybe eaten at dinner time, where as it maybe classed as afters at tea time, and also dessert at tea time.
so for me, it's all depends on how posh you are, and what your eating and when and where your eating it, and in some respect with what also, as most can be called puddings if on there own, and in something else and the same food is dessert no matter what the time is.
we have pasty forks, pudding bowls, pudding dishes, but no set time for any, as 12 is dinner time for some, but not everyone, 4 to 6 is tea time, and supper is when ever you like after 6.
