A delicious suggestion for the party!

  • 6 slices of white bread, crusts removed.
  • About 1 lb of summer fruit – a mixture of strawberries, raspberries, cherries (de-stoned), blackcurrants, redcurrants, whatever you have. You can use frozen fruit, if you like.
  • 2-3 tablespoons of sugar, according to taste.

Line a 2-pint pudding basin with the bread, reserving a slice or two for the lid. Heat the fruit gently with the sugar just until the juices run and the sugar is dissolved – you don’t want to cook it thoroughly. Put the fruit into the basin, inside the bread and cover with extra bread. Now cover with a plate or saucer small enough to go just inside the basin, and weigh it down (use a couple of tins) in the fridge overnight. Next day, turn out on to a plate. Serve with cream, yoghurt or fromage frais according to taste!
