Summer Berry Pudding


Before my husband and I were married, one of our first dates was a canoe trip. We had planned to have a picnic on one of the giant/flat rocks that sat in the middle of the river - it would be the first time I would cook for my then boyfriend…so I wanted to impress. I packed a bottle of wine, made a pesto and caprese panini, spiced-nuts trail mix, and for dessert I made Summer Berry Pudding. The dessert was super simple to make, packed up easily into the dry-bag of the canoe, and it definitely impressed. He asked me out on another date and a year later we were married - I'd like to think the picnic had something to do it. Tip: This recipe also works well when made in individual plastic storage containers, making it easily portable for a picnic…or canoe trip.
