Because last week-end was Mother's day, I've decided to make this recipe for my Fiancee's Mum. It is her favorite recipe. And this is the result, I even got a slice.

Why is it called toothpaste? Genuinely curious.

The texture is like toothpaste, the grittyness.. So I assume that's the reason. This was by far my favourite pudding from school dinners.

Its because of the consistency of the chocolate mouse, nothing more than that. Its a traditional Bedfordshire desert and was in all the schools as one of the deserts you could have at lunchtime.
