Summer Berry Pudding is a perfect recipe for those hot summer days… and nights. You can prepare it on the stove top in the morning, and let it chill all day. Or prepare it in the cool of the evening, and eat it the next day for an afternoon refreshment. I have altered the original recipe a bit, so now it’s a Summer Pudding Frozen Fruit.
I got the recipe from my friend, Michelle, who brought it from her home in England. Who says British food is bland? This refreshing blend of berries is sweet and tart and cool.
There is no actual baking involved in this recipe… you just have to cook the berries a bit. Make this recipe with fresh berries or Frozen ones. It just depends on what you have on hand. (I found Frozen to be much more convenient) I used a Buttermilk Bread.. it’s got a bit of heft, but it isn’t too dense. Plus.. it comes in a square, so it’s easy to cut.
In England it’s served with Clotted Cream or Hot Custard. In my kitchen… Vanilla Ice Cream or whipped cream.
Either way, it’s a treat!
