A LIGHT TREAT

Landscape (UK) - - In The Kitchen -

Sum­mer pud­ding is a tra­di­tional British dessert. The recipe is thought to date back to at least the 19th cen­tury, when it was known by the rather less tempt­ing name of ‘hy­dro­pathic pud­ding’. It was served in health spas as a lighter, less fat­ten­ing al­ter­na­tive to other fruity desserts of the pe­riod, which were of­ten en­cased in rich pas­try. The recipe is thought to have first ap­peared in print as ‘Sum­mer pud­ding’ in 1904, in a cook­book writ­ten by Miss E S Poyn­ter. In ad­di­tion to mak­ing the most of those glo­ri­ous sum­mer berries, it is an ex­cel­lent way of us­ing up slightly stale bread.
