The nation’s star baker, Richard Burr, has teamed up with a pub to search for Brighouse’s perfect pudding.

The ‘Proof is in the Pudding’ competition, run by the Old Mill on Wakefield Road, will give aspiring Brighouse bakers the chance to suggest their ideal pud, which, if chosen will be added onto a Chef and Brewer menu and appear in pubs up and down the country.

Richard Burr, who came to prominance on the BBC 1 show The Great British Bake Off, said: “For me baking has always been about experimenting with different flavour combinations and unusual ingredients. We are on the look-out for pudding creations that are innovative, original and exciting, something that is going to stand out from the rest and really make you want to try it.”

Entrants will be given the chance to conjure up their dream pudding on the Chef and Brewer website and via an app on its Facebook page.

Richard will choose his top five recipes to go to a nationwide vote.

Elaine and Stephen Spencer, general managers at the Old Mill, added: “We are hoping to find pudding ideas that are both creative and delicious in equal measure, whether it’s an old favourite, a personal speciality or a classic pudding with a modern twist. We can’t wait to see what the Brighouse community come up with.”
