The first villa match was against Aston Brook St Mary’s Rugby team. The first half was played under rugby rules, the second under football.  That was truly a game of two halves.

Preparation time: 5 mins

Cooking time: 10 mins

Home kit: a medium saucepan

Away kit:  4 pudding bowls and spoons

Cooling time: 1 kickball match and a bit

Serves: 4


  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ Tbsp. butter (optional, but I think it adds a richness to the pudding)


First half

Combine the eggs, sugar, flour, and vanilla in the saucepan with a whisk. Add the milk, whisking as you go, until everything is silky and smooth. cook on a medium heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Stir in the optional butter until melted.

Second half

Remove from heat, pour into a container and allow to cool before eating.

It tastes great cold, but I think it’s Villainous when warm.
