Five Recipes That Belong at Madam Puddifoot’s This Valentine’s Day
We may not have gotten the menu list we deserved when Harry and Cho visited Madam Puddifoot’s on their one and only date, but we can sure imagine the kind of adorable, delectable treats she would have served. Here are five recipes that look like they belong in her kitchen.
1. Mocha Coffee Soda
More than anything, Madam Puddifoot’s tea shop is over the top. Frilly decorations? Cherubs throwing confetti on the diners? This coffee soda recipe perfectly fits the bill–it’s a meal and a drink all in one. Cold, thick, creamy, and honestly more like a dessert than a beverage, you know Cho ordered this when Cedric brought her here.
2. Sponge Hearts with an Orange Twist and Homemade Raspberry Jam
Is there anything more romantic than tiny, heart-shaped treats on Valentine’s Day? Probably not. This recipe has the perfect amount of fussiness that you know would fit right in at Madam Puddifoot’s frilly little shop. It’s a little more involved, but if you’ve got the time, these cakes will be the highlight of your Valentine’s celebration.
3. Funfetti Cake
If we know anything about Madam Puddifoot, it’s that she appreciates some well-placed confetti. This recipe is probably a staple at her shop year-round, but it absolutely deserves some love for Valentine’s Day, because is there anything more decadent than a sprinkle-filled cake? For an extra Valentine’s vibe, you could always substitute all pink sprinkles for the multi-colored ones used here.
4. Valentine’s Fudge
It seems like Madam Puddifoot would take any opportunity to cute-ify a classic, and this is the perfect example. Not including the fever variety (I’m looking at you, Fred and George), fudge is one of the richest, tastiest treats out there. This recipe is easy to make and the perfect addition to your tea tray.
5. The Perfect Cup of Tea
You know how food just tastes better at a restaurant? Well, I’m sure the same goes for Madam Puddifoot’s tea. Follow these instructions to try to get as close as possible to that perfect cuppa straight from your very own kitchen. For those of us who aren’t from the land of tea (i.e., the UK), we can use all the help we can get.
So if you can’t make it to Hogsmeade this Valentine’s Day, but still want to experience the magic with your loved one, try one of these recipes and bring Madam Puddifoot’s to you, wherever you are. Happy Valentine’s Day!
