The official Platinum Pudding recipe for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations has now been announced.

Last night (12 May) it was revealed that the winning pudding was Jemma Melvin’s Lemon Swiss Roll and Amaretti Trifle, inspired by the lemon posset which was served at the Queen and Prince Philip’s wedding.

The announcement was made during a special BBC One show, The Jubilee Pudding: 70 Year’s in the Baking, in which five presented their creations to the panel of judges, chaired by GBBO’s Mary Berry.

The Duchess of Cornwall made a surprise appearance to announce the winning desert, hugging Jemma and wishing her “many congratulations” for her achievement.

Jemma revealed that her pudding was also inspired by both of her grandmothers, as well as the royal wedding dessert.

According to a release, the trifle consists of, “lemon curd Swiss roll on the bottom, St Clement’s jelly, lemon custard, amaretti biscuits, mandarin coulis, fresh whipped cream, candied peel, chocolate shards and crushed amaretti biscuits on top.”

The aim of the Platinum Pudding was to create a dessert which people at home would be able to make themselves during street parties and celebration events.

Jemma’s trifle follows in the footsteps of other famous royal recipes such as Victoria Sponge (named after Queen Victoria) and Coronation Chicken (devised for the Queen’s coronation).

The full recipe will be available online on the BBC, Fortnum and Mason and Big Jubilee Lunch websites.
