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...
