Seriously Fruity Chocolate Cherries & Berries Summer Puddings

Two individual summer puddings. The fruit is layered with a moist chocolate cake rather than bread slices. Its layered in discs/rings, rather than forming an outer shell. The chocolate sponge is drizzled with blackcurrant liqueur for extra flavour. A mix of sour cherries and summer berries make up the fruity layers to form a tower. Could also be avaliable in a large flat tart shape for sharing.

What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?

It uses the finest fruits and ingredients avaliable. Its a fun, delicious and elgant twist on a much loved British classic dessert. Its in a tower formation instead of a pudding mould shape for extra presentation and looks stylish enough to serve at dinner parties or BBQ events. The use of blackcurrant liqueur adds an extra indulgant adult twist. Its fruit and light for summer but the chocolate layers make it indulgant too.

Ingredients

  • Moist chocolate cake, sour cherries, blackcurrants, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackcurrant liqueur.

Method

  1. Cut out a circle of chocolate cake and lay in the base of an individual tall ring mould, drizzle over a little liqueur. Make a chunky fruit compote with the fruits and add a spoonful on top of the cake base. Add another cake disc, more fruit and a final cake layer. Leave to chill before removing the ring - a chocolate summer fruit tower! Same could be done for a large ring mould to allow it to be cut into slices and shared.
