German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Borrowing from English pudding.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Pudding m (genitive Puddings, plural Puddinge)

  1. milk pudding
  2. thick custard
  3. (by extension) anything similar to the above, such as crème or mousse

Usage notes[edit]

  • Custard is not regarded as a single thing in German. It is referred to as Pudding when thick and as Soße (sauce) when thin.
  • When known, e.g. because it is written on the package, one can refer to crèmes and the like by their proper name; often, however, Germans do not bother and refer to them as Pudding since for example a flavoured industrial yoghurt is often hard to tell apart from thin milk pudding.
