I cooked this for ages and the middle was still under cooked! Not as nice as I thought it would be and needed more sugar on the fruit as a bit too tarte!

Very tasty pudding, 200g definitely not enough fruit. Used 600g and more caster sugar. Served with vanilla custard - delicious dessert

The recipe in the Good Food magazine (Sept. 2008) actually gave the amount of berries to use as 600gr not 200gr as shown above. This could be why one person didn't find it enough to cover the base of the baking dish.

Resulting pudding was very yummy, but I found the recipe slightly confusing. Above the recipe it says "Prep: 10 mins; Cook: 30 mins" but then in the recipe it says to cook for 45 minutes! I actually had to cook this for 50 minutes and even then the centre of the sponge was slightly undercooked in the centre, but as this is a pudding rather than a cake it doesn't really matter. It was only after cooking this that I understood what the instruction "make a little dip in the middle of the mixture" actually meant, so make sure you do that! I used frozen blackberries and served with vanilla quark. A great storecupboard recipe to throw together in a hurry!

simple but yummy, very much loved it, i also put in some vanilla when i made it, this is a good pudding though, it also has potential for a wide range of side servings to go with it!

Was very yummy. But the 200g of berries didn't cover the base of my dish, so doubled that ... and probably could still have used more.

Yummy! I used a slightly larger baking dish so had a make a bit more of the topping to cover the berries but it worked a treat and went down very well with my friends ;)

I added a load of sugar onto the fruit before I added the topping - it would have been really sour... it brings out the flavour a lot more too.
