I had this dessert recently in England and it was delicious so thanks Clinton for posting it. Because I'm on Weight Watchers, I changed the recipe by using 6 cups of mixed berries, and 1/2 cup Splenda in place of the sugar. It also took 7 slices of bread. I used a slotted spoon to remove the berries from the pot into the bowl and then saved the reserved juice to pour over top of the pudding before adding a tablespoon of fresh whipped cream.
This was a little too sweet for our taste.
This is very odd looking when set and turned onto plate, yet sooooo wonderful, a real taste treat. I realized too late that the reason for a weight on top was to encourage the top slice of bread to soak up juice, and my weight (a small plate) was not heavy enough. Oh well, juast a speed bump on the road to a heavenly dessert.
I did not actually make this, my friend did for me for my birthday, while she used mixed berries rather than just raspberries, I must say...it was divine!!!!! I loved it :) Great recipe :)
This is great. I used a mixture of fresh raspberries, blackberries, red currants, blueberries and strawberries. The sugar content may seem large, however it is used to give the fruit a jam like consistancy and helps the desert set up. If you are not wanting to use as much sugar, substitute some of the sugar with gelatine or vegetarian equivalent (follow the packet directions), remembering that you will need to add some water as the sugar does provide some liquid once disolved.
Easy to make and uses ingredients that most people have around the house, with the exception of the fresh raspberries. I used frozen raspberries, which I think created too much juice. Also, the amount of sugar seems high, especially if served with sweetened whipped cream. But all in all an easy and delicious recipe. I had to dig into it before it was done because I couldn't wait any longer to try some! I haven't even dumped it out of the bowl yet, so I don't know what it will look like.
I was a little hesitant about the slices of bread but this was very tasty and really easy to do.
I also used whole wheat bread (it was fresh ground, whole wheat bread that was a bit crusty). WOW,it was delicious! I could not stop eating it, and even my kids gobbled it up. Easy, delicious, and mostly healthy, this recipe is a keeper!
