Congratulations to Prince William and Duchess Kate on the birth of their baby boy. In their honor, I’d like to make something British. Berries are plentiful right now and it’s still too hot to bake, so how about a Summer Berry Pudding aka English Summer Pudding, which requires no baking.
The basic concept for Summer Berry Pudding is pretty straightforward. The traditional British version calls for fresh black currants and other berries sweetened with sugar then poured over sliced white bread in a bowl. The mixture is refrigerated and then unmolded to serve. It’s kind of like a lazy shortcake that does nothing but sit around and soak up juices. I know some guys like this. But say no more.
