Matthew Walker is to launch a new sponge pudding range in Tesco and Sainsbury’s. The Scrummie puddings from the Northern Foods-owned business consist of five varieties, each topped with a different sauce.

The puddings can be microwaved in 90 seconds and will be the first branded ambient pudding range launched in the bakery aisle. They are made from 100% butter sponge, free-range eggs and contain no artificial ingredients.

The puddings come in Syrup Sponge, Stickie Toffee & Pecan Nuts, Chocolate, Spotted Dick and Cherrie Jam flavours, and have a shelf-life of 5-6 weeks from point of purchase.
