Summer Berry apple Pudding

Berry apple Pudding

With only a few weeks left of our summer this berry apple pudding should keep the memories alive a little bit longer. Its loaded on top with fresh blueberries and blackberries with sliced apple in between. Taste this and your palate will sing your praises. This Summer Berry Apple pudding will take you around 25 minutes to prepare and 40 minutes in the oven. You can serve hot or cold and add either cream or custard for me the custard wins for this bake. If your too late for fresh berries in your part of the world then go for frozen although its just not the same.

This berry pudding will keep for a couple of days at most because of the fresh berries but is best served fresh. I used thinly slice granny smith apples which are tart and tangy and balance out well with the berries.
