When summer comes calling !

When summer comes calling with a profusion of berries to offer who can resist making a dessert as simple as this?

Berry pudding 2

It looks a lot like summer now, a stark difference from the weather we had for the long weekend, when many of us here, went for the 4th of July barbecues sporting winter gear!

We picked blueberries and strawberries this weekend, and bought a good amount of cherries from a U PICK farm at Sauvie Island, will be going back for more raspberries and boysenberries in the coming weekends. You need to do only a little with freshly picked berries, the hard work is done by Mother Nature herself. Simple cobblers, puddings or compotes, everything looks so good with berries in, it is hard not to take a photo and post after mhhhhhh…. many many months.

Fresh berries

Blueberry Pudding

1 cup blue berries

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tbsp farina (rava)

1/2 cup confectionary sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup water

Mix the dry ingredients together with a wire whisk. Add berries and just enough water to make a thick batter. Spoon the batter in to buttered ramekins (3/4th full) or mini cake pans. Bake 325 degree for 20 minutes. Serve at room temperature with chilled Creme Anglaise( recipe here)favored with lemon zest and rosemary (optional).
