Ingredients

  • 1 kg frozen mixed berries
  • 3 x limes juiced
  • 1.5 cups caster (just 1 if you like it tart)
  • 2 x sponge cakes (bought or made)
  • 1 x extra icing sugar to dust
  • 1 x extra thick cream to serve
  • 1 x extra dried rose petals (optional)

Method

•Place berries and lime juice in a large saucepan and heat on medium
•When the berries have thawed add the sugar
•Heat for about 10-15 minutes till the berries have softened and the sugar has dissolved
•Take off the heat.
•Spray a cake tin with oil (spring form or removable base)
•Slice cakes into approx. 1cm thick slices
•It doesn’t really matter if it is round or square cake it will all mould together.
•Trim most of the crust from the cake as this can stop the colour soaking into the cake
•Line the cake tin with cake
•Put the cake tin onto a plate and add the berries and juice
•Add a layer of cake on top of the berries to enclose
•Press gently to even out the berries and start the spread of juice
•Cover with plastic wrap and add a weight such as a plate and a can
•Refrigerate over night
•Flip upside down onto a serving plate and unmould the pudding
•Serve dusted with icing sugar, roses and cream
•The colour of this pudding is so beautiful it just makes me happy.
Note: I wouldn’t use fresh berries unless you have them growing, frozen are a much better budget option and perfect for this. Also some lime zest can be added for extra zing.
