Pudding for breakfast sounds like a child's dream come true, but it can also be a healthy way to start the day. An exemplary breakfast, this bread pudding brings together fibre from the wholegrain bread and berries, vitamin C from the fruit and protein from the egg whites.
*Try apple slices sautéed with cinnamon as a topping when berries are not in season.
*You can prepare the recipe a few hours or a day in advance. Follow the recipe up until the end of step 3, then cover and refrigerate.
Blueberries and raspberries are nutritional storehouses, brimming with vitamin C, fibre and a number of disease-fighting phyto-chemicals that sweep harmful free radicals out of your body. You can use frozen berries because freezing doesn't destroy their nutritional value or their flavour – though their texture and colour do suffer slightly.
