Summer berry pudding

summer pudding (1 of 1)

I replace the cream mix with a thick vanilla yogurt  sometimes to lighten it up a bit, nice after a big Christmas lunch!

125 grams caster sugar
tablespoon lemon juice
90 ml cointreu
100ml water

3 punnets berries

Cream filling
150 ml cream
2 tablespoon icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
250 gram cream cheese

200 grams sponge fingers or sponge cake

Make syrup by gently boiling ingredients until sugar dissolved (add cointreu last once boiled if you want to keep the alcohol content). Leave to cool and then add the berries that have had the stems removed and chopped to about 1 1cm piece if needed.

Blend cream, cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla in the food processor until smooth

Then layer berries sponge fingers and cream mix in individual portions or one large dish. Put the berries and the juice on the biscuits so that they can soften and soak up the juice, leave for a few hours to soften before serving.
