On 31 July, 1992, Petunia Dursley made a pudding for her husband to make a deal. It was destroyed by the House-elf Dobby.


On 31 July, 1992, Petunia made this pudding for Mr and Mrs Mason. Unknown to them, Dobby the house-elf came and levitated it before cancelling the charm, causing the pudding to fall to the floor and explode all over the place, to get Harry in trouble and force him to stay at Privet Drive.

Behind the scenes

  • American fans may be confused by the portrayal of this desert as a cake-like confection in the film version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. In American English, pudding usually is exclusively used to mean a milk-based dessert with the consistency of a custard, while in British English, a pudding can be any number of starch or dairy based desserts, or even an informal term for the dessert course in general.
  • In the film, instead of dropping it on the floor, Dobby drops it on Mrs. Mason's head. Even though it is destroyed, Mr. Mason tastes it.
    • However, in the LEGO game adaptation Dobby smashes it in Mrs. Mason's face.
  • In the original version of the film it is still a pudding, however in the Danish translation it is translated as lagkage, which is the Danish translation of Torte.
