7 thin slices dense white bread -- crusts removed
4 cups sorted blackberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons sweet red wine
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Line bottom and sides of a 1 quart deep glass bowl with bread slices, cutting
slices to fit snugly. In stainless steel saucepan, combine berries, sugar, 1
tbs. wine and lemon juice. Simmer mixture, stirring gently, for 5-7 minutes, or
until sugar is dissolved.
Pour mixture gently over bread-lined bowl and top with remaining 2 thin slices
of bread. Sprinkle top with remaining 1 tbs. of wine. Invert a small flat plate
just large enough to fit inside the bowl over bread; weight it down; chill
pudding for 8 hours in fridge or overnight. Remove weight and plate, invert a
platter over pudding, and invert pudding onto platter. Serve with sweetened
whipped cream. Serves 6.
