    slow as pudding to bake

    Hello. I am wondering if it usually takes a long time to bake a pudding. / And what does "a peach in the sun" mean in this context?
    Please help. Thank you.

    ------------(The sentences below are from a children's book)
    Mom: Shoes and socks! Hurry and scurry
    Kid: (thinking) But I was slow as pudding to bake
    as turtle half-awake as a peach in the sun as a snail going to run...

    It looks like nonsense to me.
