Since I haven't made dessert in quite a long time, and my parents were having a little dinner party with Dan and my in-laws, I decided to try out a dessert I've had my eye on for quite some time. Although technically named the Summer Berry Pudding, I don't think it has to be made solely in warm months. What I truly love about the recipe is that it's a no bake dessert, that tastes absolutely amazing and fresh.
Using the berries that the Bon Appetit recipe suggested, I created layers of this bread pudding, for which the soaking surface was soft, eggy challah bread. You can also use brioche, but I think that challah is pretty easy to get, and if you have any extra, you can always use it for a yummy butter and marmalade sandwich the next day.
Overall, I loved the freshness and the earthiness of this dessert, and the dinner guests totally echoed my sentiments. As I saw people reaching over and taking seconds, a satisfied smile spread across my face. I will be making this again, I thought to myself.
Here's the recipe for your convenience and feel free to substitute with the berries of your choice.
