This recipe is SUPER easy!

About a Dozen White bread (crusts removed)
1/2 Cup Red Currant Jam
1/2 pint Raspberries
1/2 pint Blackberries
1/2 Blueberries
2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 teaspoon Cinnamon


Line a medium-small glass bowl with plastic wrap.

Spread red currant jam over each of the slices of bread. Line the bowl with the slices of bread, jam side in. Use as many pieces as necessary to create a solid layer. Reserve a few slices of the bread to use later.

Combine the berries in a small saucepot over medium heat with lemon juice and sugar. Cook until the berries begin to burst, about 5 minutes, then remove from heat.

Pour the berry mixture into the well in the bread-lined bowl. Cover the top with the reserved slices of the bread. Place a plate over the top, and weigh down with a book or kitchen brick. Place in refrigerator and chill overnight.

To serve, remove the brick, and then hold the bowl and plate together and flip. Carefully remove the bowl.

In another chilled bowl, whip the cream until peaks form. Fold in the cinnamon.

Spoon portions of the summer pudding, and top with a dollop of the cinnamon whipped cream.
