Recipes
  • Summer Pudding

    You will need

    Berries

    • 250g Mixed Berries (fresh or frozen)
    • 6 slices bread
    • Sugar to taste

    To serve

    • Clotted cream or pouring cream

    Summer Pudding

    1. Put the mixed berries into a pan, add some sugar to taste and bring the fruit to the boil. The liquid will release and the fruit will soften
    2. Remove from the heat and strain the fruit from the liquor
    3. Cut one of the slices of bread into two circles, they may be different sizes as one for the bottom and one for the top, then remove the crusts from the remaining sliced bread and cut into large fingers.
    4. Dip the smaller circle into the fruit juice, soak well and line the bottom of the mould (remember this will become the top) then soak the fingers and place them in overlapping the slices as you go, fill the lined mould with your drained fruit pack in tightly which will then give you a better finish, top with the final circle and press down
    5. Place in the fridge to set until ready to serve, minimum 1 hour

    To serve

    1. Turn out the summer pudding from the mould onto a plate, top with fresh berries and spoon the cream on the side.
    2. If you make a large pudding cut into portions and then serve.

    7. Once the dough has doubled in size transfer to a floured work surface.
    8. Knock the dough back by folding it inwards until all of the air is knocked out.
    9. Split the dough into 4-6 equally sized balls and roll into 3-5mm thick ovals.
    10. Take the hot tray out of the oven, dust with flour and place the pitta breads on it
    11. Bake for 5-10 minutes, or until they just start to colour.
