A berry sponge pudding is a great, quick and easy dessert to make when you are short on time but want to enjoy a pudding with your meal.
Tip frozen berries into a dish, make a quick sponge cake mixture, then bake in the oven. It doesn’t get easier than that, and it certainly doesn’t taste better than this!
The frozen berries cook down to make a fruit filling worthy of any crumble or pie. The vanilla sponge topping adds that special something to the dessert making it a real family favourite.
It’s a comforting treat AND it counts as one of your five-a-day of fruit, what more could you need! A berry sponge pudding is perfect for a quick and easy pudding, and here in my house it goes down very well with the kids, in fact the whole family.
If you need a dessert to enjoy on a lazy Sunday after a roast dinner, or even mid-week on a cold evening, this pudding is ideal.
Eat it warm with ice cream or custard, or cold from the dish!
