This no-cook variation of bread pudding, uses bread, berries, yogurt, and time to create a pudding style dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups berries (frozen blueberries, sliced strawberries, or raspberries, thawed)
  • 5 slices whole wheat bread (crusts removed)
  • 1/2 sugar (1/2 teaspoon, optional)
  • vanilla yogurt, low-fat (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine the thawed berries and sugar (if you choose to use the sugar).
  2. Layer a spoonful of berries on the bottom of a small 2 cup deep dish. Cover the berries and the bottom of the dish with a layer of bread. Continue layering berries and bread until the dish is full, finishing with a layer of bread.
  3. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and place a plate or bowl over the top of the berry dish that fits just inside of it. Place a heavy object on top to press down on the fruit and bread layers.
  4. Refrigerate overnight. Check the dish to be sure juice does not run over the top. You may need to replace the heavy object with a lighter one to prevent spills.
  5. Serve with a dollop of vanilla yogurt or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Notes

In summer fresh berries can be used.

I prepared this dish for young students. They did not care for it, but my adult audience loved it.

Questionable!

Is this recipe missing the eggs and milk? I have never heard of bread pudding NOT containing milk and bread! This was one of the first recipes I looked at on the seasonal fruit and vegetable page, and was disappointed. If this is to be a site we would promote to participants, food shelves, and other agencies, we may need someone to critic and revise the recipes!
