Sumptuous summer pudding
- 750g (26.5oz) of mixed summer fruit of your choice from: raspberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, blackberries, cherries, blueberries, loganberries, strawberries, tayberries, whitecurrants....
- 185g (6.5oz) caster sugar
- 2 tbsp crème de cassis
- 1 good medium white loaf of bread
- Clotted or double cream to serve
Take a one litre bowl, rinse with cold water and drain, then line with a round of bread in the bottom of the bowl and triangular slices around the sides with no gaps. Pour in all the fruit and remaining juice then cover with the bread wedges. Press a saucer that fits inside the bowl onto the top layer of bread and weight down with kitchen weights or a bag of rice, whatever. Leave overnight. To serve, remove the saucer, run a knife carefully around the sides, place a serving plate over the bowl and invert. Brush over the reserved juice to finish and serve with the cream.
