  • About

Summer pudding is one of England’s favorite traditional desserts. A dome-shaped pudding basin is lined with slices of white bread; berries and red currants serve as the filling; the mixture is weighed down, and the whole thing melds together in the refrigerator, with the crimson juices soaking through the bread. Served with plenty of whipped double cream or heavy cream as it is in England, this beautiful dessert cools the palate and lifts the spirits on a sluggish hot day.
