  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, water, and raspberries. Cook, stirring carefully so as not to damage the berries, until the mixture is hot, and the sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Line a 1 quart bowl with 5 slices of bread. Pour the raspberry mixture over the bread, and place the last slice of bread on top. Cover the bowl loosely with plastic wrap. Place a weight on top of the bowl (canned goods work well), and refrigerate overnight.
  3. The next day, remove plastic wrap, and invert onto a plate. Serve chilled, with whipped cream on the side.

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...

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, th...

I was a little hesitant about the slices of bread but this was very tasty and really easy to do.

I used buttercrust homestyle white bread from the bakery (the best white bread ever IMO) and refrigerated the pudding overnight weighted down with two cans of veggies. I trimmed the crust off ...

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...

I didn't have fresh raspberries, so I used 1 1/2 cups of strawberries and 2 banana's with whole wheat bread instead of white then added a little cinnamon. Everyone LOVED this. Reminds me of bre...
