30Prep Time


  1. Step 1:

    Remove the blackcurrants and redcurrants from their stems and wash. Put in a large saucepan with the raspberries and the sugar and a splash of water.

  2. Step 2:

    Heat on low until the fruit is simmering, gently simmer for 4-5 minutes, until the berries start to burst, then take off the heat.

  3. Step 3:

    Cut the crusts off the sliced bread. Cut a circle the same size as the base of the bowl out of 1 of the slices and place in the bottom of the pudding bowl. Cut the rest of the slices into 3 and use them to line the sides of the bowl, ensuring there are no gaps. Save a few of the slices for the lid.

  4. Step 4:

    Pour the fruit into the basin, reserving some of the juices. Top with the saved slices.

  5. Step 5:

    Place a small plate on top of the pudding, it should fit just inside the rim of the bowl, and place a weight on top. Some of the juices may escape, so place the bowl on a tray to catch it. Chill in the fridge overnight.

  6. Step 6:

    To serve, carefully slide a knife around the edge of the pudding and turn onto a plate. Use the reserve juices to brush any patches where the juices haven’t soaked through and top with seasonal berries.
