It should be summer, my red currants can not believe that there are 16 degrees, it's raining all time and they can not see the sun. They are ripe poor things, a summer pudding, with mixed berries should be their end.
The randomly selected ingredients this time are:
bread- berries- chocolate - lime
This is an easy dessert , almost no cooking needed, nice and easy and colorful and sweet as the season should be.
For 6 individual moulds:
6-8 slices of firm white bread
600 gr mixed berries (strawberries, blackberries, black and red currants, raspberries) fresh or frozen
2 tablespoons cane sugar
200 gr white chocolate
2-3 tablespoon milk
lime peel, grated
Put the fruit, sorted and washed, in a saucepan, together with sugar and a couple of tablespoons of water. Cook over low heat for no more than five minutes. The fruit should be shiny and still firm, and there should be a lot of juice in the pan.
Cut the crust off the bread, set two pieces aside and then cut the rest into stripes (3 each slice) lengthwise.
Cover with the reserved pieces the bottom of the moulds, then line the inside with the fingers of bread, pushing them together so that no fruit can escape. Fill the moulds with the fruit and juice mixture, then cover with the remaining bread fingers.
Cover with aluminium foil, then put them on a tray, bottom down, with an eavy weight on top and leave them overnight in the fridge.
The day after melt the chocolate with little milk and season with lime peel. Pour over the unmolded puddings as it is still warm and enjoy.
