Ingredients

  • 450g summer berries, defrosted if frozen
  • 4 tbsp blackcurrant cordial or créme de Cassis

    Blackcurrants

    black-cuh-rant

    The most intensely coloured and flavoured of all currants, blackcurrants are highly aromatic and…

  • 225g pot of organic red fruits compote
  • 6 medium slices white bread, crusts cut off

Method

  1. Mix the first 3 ingredients and leave for 5-10 mins. If you’re using defrosted fruit, tip in some of the juice, too. Meanwhile, line a 1.2 litre pudding basin with cling film, leaving an overhang. Cut a circle of bread to fit the base, then quarter the rest.

  2. Drain the juices from the soaked fruit into a bowl, dip the bread in until soaked. Layer up the fruit and bread, pour over the remaining juices and cover with the overhanging cling film – weigh down with a small plate and a couple of cans. Chill in the fridge for 10 mins or until ready to eat. Serve with single cream.

The bowl that I used was a bit too large, and it all collapsed into a flat pankace shape when I took it out! It tasted fine, but nevertheless it is known as 'failpudding' in my house...
