Introduction: Aston Villa Football Club are based in Witton, Birmingham. The club was founded in March 1874 by Jack Hughes, Frederick Matthews, Walter Price and William Scattergood. They have played at Villa Park since 1897. Aston Villa were founder members of The Football League in 1888. They have the fourth highest total of major honours won by any English club.
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
- 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)
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.
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.
