  • A pudding basin or smallish bowl my pudding basin measured 5.5 inches across the top and was 4 inches high
  • 3-5 slices of medium cut white bread
  • 500 g bag of frozen mixed red fruit or summer berry mix
  • 80 g sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • Generous scraping of nutmeg
  • 25 ml creme de cassis or cherry brandy optional
  • Grating of dark chocolate to serve
  1. Line the pudding basin with cling film.
  2. Cut the crusts off the bread and fully line the bowl with bread. Start with a disc at the bottom then build up the sides. Small overlaps are good, gaps are bad ;)
  3. In a small pan gently heat the fruit to defrost and let some of the juices flow. You don't want to boil it or turn it to a puree. Aim for the majority of the fruit to still be plump and plenty of juice in the bottom of the pan. If some berries are still a little frozen don't worry, they'll defrost fully in the fridge.
  4. Mix through the spices and alcohol if using.
  5. Pour the spiced fruit through a sieve, catching the juices in a bowl blow.
  6. Dismantle your slices of bread and carefully soak each one in the fruit juices. Rebuild the bowl with the juicy bread lining.
  7. Tip in the fruit. Cover with another slice of bread, cutting it to fit. Pour any leftover juiced over the last slice.
  8. Fold the cling film over the top of the pudding and pop in the fridge, preferably overnight.
  9. To serve unpeel the cling film. Pop a small plate on top of the pudding basin and flip over.
  10. Tug gently on the cling film to dislodge the pudding onto the plate.
  11. Sprinkle with a little grated dark chocolate and top with a min firework if the feeling grabs you :)
