Mixed Berry Pudding

Mixed Berry Pudding 
Before moving over to the UK, Pudding to me was something rich and creamy, milky, and rich. Like a thick custard you could eat it with a spoon, best served ice cold, and coming in flavours like butterscotch, vanilla, chocolate, lemon . . .

This was the pudding I grew up with and it came in packages that my mother added milk to and cooked on top of the stove until it thickened.  She would pour it into individual bowls. We each had our own color of bowl. My favorite part was the skin that formed on top and I loved butterscotch pudding best of all.

I remember being really surprised when I moved over here to the UK and was asked if I wanted pudding . . .  expecting a choice of vanilla, chocolate, or butterscotch at the very least, of the creamy milky concoction of my younger years but was presented instead with a whole menu  . . . 
Mixed Berry Pudding 
A menu filled with delicious sounding collations . . .  such as sticky toffee pudding, roly poly pudding, bakewell pudding and the like . . .  all substantial, and served warm with cream or warm custard . . .  which was the only thing even remotely resembling the puddings of my childhood.
Mixed Berry Pudding 
And not only that but the word "Pudding" was designed to cover a whole variety of dishes . . . "Desserts" . . .  "Afters" . . . a cornucopia of wonderfully tasty delights to tempt the palate.  Each one designed to make your eyes light up and your lips say howdy!

Pies and cakes and bakes . . .  oh my!  So I must apologize if you have come here today looking for something like jello . . .  this is not that kind of pudding.  This is a British pudding  . . .

Rich, hearty, warming and delicious  . . .

consisting of stewed summer fruits  . . . berries  . . .  blueberry, raspberry, blackberry . . . baked at the bottom of the dish   . . .
Mixed Berry Pudding 
with a light blanket of cake baked on top  . . . buttery and rich . . .  with a moist yogurt batter . . .
Mixed Berry Pudding 
sprinkled with flaked almonds . . . .   the fruit stews and bubbles away in the oven while the cake puffs and the almonds toast  . . .
Mixed Berry Pudding 
Delicious served warm and spooned into bowls  . . .

and topped by dollops of icy thick yogurt . . .  or lashings of rich pouring cream if you would rather . . .
Mixed Berry Pudding  
The perfect Autumnal dessert  . . .  for those nights when you desire an additional bit of comfort as you sit by the fire and toast your toes.  Delicious!

Todd really, really enjoyed this.  He is a pudding fiend, and these types are his favorite kinds  . . . he would actually prefer custard with his, but today he had to make do with yogurt.  He was licking his chops afterwards with a deep smile of satisfaction on his face.  I love it when that happens.  Bon Appetit!
