Summer Fruits Pudding

Friday, 2 August 2013

British food gets slated all the time but one must accept that it has an element of resourcefulness. Summer Fruits Pudding is the epitome of this. It combines stale bread and fruit gluts to create one of the most delightful desserts of summertime. Being allotment people, we do tend to have our share of fruit and berry gluts every so often. Here is how I transformed one such glut into a tasty dessert:

6-8 slices of stale bread
750g berries and fruit (I used currants, strawberries, plums and raspberries)
150g caster sugar
4 tbsp raspberry liqueur


Stew the fruit with sugar for only a couple of minutes till the juices start running. Add the liqueur. Separate the juice and keep aside in a bowl.  

Cut the crusts off the bread and dip each slice into the bowl of juice before layering the pudding bowl. Use a right slice for the base first and then add the sides. Add the fruit mixture into the bowl. Cover the top with a  few more slices of bread. Trim the edges.

Place a flat plate and another heavy weight on top of the bowl and refrigerate for a few hours. To serve, turn the bowl upside down so that the pudding rests on the plate.

Serve on hot summer days and eat alfresco for maximum enjoyment.

This is such an incredibly easy recipe and so I hope you give it a go too. And do let me know how you get on! Ann x
