In Britain, Italian pizzas and Indian curries are now
as popular as traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pudding! This recipe is
both delicious and traditional...
English Summer Pudding
3 1/3 cups mixed berries (raspberries,
strawberries, blackberries, etc.)
1 5/8 cup sugar
about 6 slices of slightly dry sliced white bread
1 tablespoon water
Wash the fruit. Take out any stalks.
Put the fruit, sugar and water in a pan and cook gently for three minutes.
Cut the crusts off the bread. Use all but one slice to line the bottom and
sides of 1 quart mixing bowl. Fill the bowl with the cooked berries and
make a lid from the last slice of bread. Put a flat plate on top of the
pudding and press it all down with a heavy can. Put it in the refrigerator
overnight. Turn out onto a plate, and serve with whipped cream.
