Why This Recipe Works

We wanted to find an easy way to make a refreshing summer berry pudding dessert and to discover the best bread for the job, when developing our summer berry pudding recipe. Instead of lining the mold with bread and then filling it with berries, we opted to layer the bread and berries together in a loaf pan; the berries on the outside were like brilliant jewels, while the layers of bread on the inside almost melted into the fruit. We used day-old potato bread in our summer berry pudding recipe, finding that its even, tight-crumbed, tender texture and its light sweetness made a perfect match for the berries (fresh bread became too gummy in the pudding).
