Summer pudding made with currants, in a bowl
|Alternative name(s)||Summer fruit pudding|
|Place of origin||United Kingdom|
|Main ingredient(s)||Sliced white bread, fruit, fruit juice|
Summer pudding or summer fruit pudding is a British dessert made of sliced white bread, layered in a deep bowl with fruit and fruit juice. It is left to soak overnight and turned out onto a plate. The dessert was most popular from the late 19th to the early 20th century. However, there is no clear record of its origin.
Making summer pudding is much easier if the bread is somewhat stale. This helps the fruit juices soak through the bread, which makes the pudding more pleasant. Summer pudding can be served with cream.
