Valentines Spiced Pudding

Steal your secret admirers heart with this easy and delicious fruity, vegan Valentines Day dessert ♡

  • 8 Slices BFree Sliced White Loaf
  • 200g frozen mixed berries
  • 100g frozen cherries or extra berries
  • 3 tbs caster sugar
  • 2-star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ½ Vanilla pod split
To Serve
  • Creme fraiche or pouring cream (plant based)
  • 2 tbs pistachio nuts roughly chopped

Scrap the seeds from the vanilla and add to a small pad with the pod, berries, the remaining spices, sugar and 2 tbs water. Gentle bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and stir occasionally for a about 3-5 minutes. You want to keep the berries whole where possible, but the juices to be released, some will naturally soften. Remove from the heat and set aside while you prepare the tins.


Line 2 mini 200ml pudding tins with cling film.


*Cut the crusts from the bread slices and cut each slice in half so you have wide soldiers


Line the pudding tins with the bread slices, overlapping slightly, cut any slices as needed to fill in gaps and cover the bottom. You should need approx. 3 slices for the sides and 1 slice cut for the bottom and top.


Once the berries have cooled, remove the star anise cinnamon and vanilla pod.


Divide the berries between the puddings, leaving a 1cm gap at the top. You should still have some berries and juice remaining for dressing the puddings on serving.


Fold any bread slices inwards and finish with a square of bread to cover the tops, so no berries are showing.


Cover the puddings with cling film and place in the fridge with a weight on top to compact the pudding down. We used jars of jam or other condiments we happen to have in our fridge.


Put the remaining berries and syrup into a small container in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.


Leave for a minimum of 4 hours or ideally overnight.

When you are ready to serve, remove the cling film from the base and turn out onto a small serving plate. Peel the cling film away.


If there is still white bread showing in places, use some of the remaining syrup to brush on the outside.


Spoon any extra juice and berries on top of the puddings, add a good dollop of creme fraiche and some chopped pistachio nuts to finish.

  • keep the remaining crust for breadcrumbs, wizz in a food processor to form crumbs and place in a freezer bag. Freeze for later use. DO NOT DISCARD.

This recipe can easily be multiplied up to serve more or make one large pudding.

With some of the gluten free pittas you just end up as a piece of flat bread. These ones actually puff up in the toaster and act just like the normal gluteny ones. We buy them all the time, they’re great.


As a lover of all things pita bread and pita chips I was blown away by the taste and texture of Bfree pitas! I’m a huge lover of Mediterranean food in general and these have never failed to create a tasty 10/10 Mediterranean meal. I usually split em and fill em up with my favourite veggies, hummus and chicken then drizzle with tzatziki sauce and it reminds me the Greek restaurant I used to love so much as a kid! Definitely a must try for all my pita lovers out there.


I have tried so many BFree products and they are all so good. My personal favorite is the Pita Bread. It is such a unique bread for being gluten free and I have never seen another brand make the same. It tastes incredible I love them. Thank you for creating such amazing gluten free breads!


A perfectly gooey brownie slice! The salted caramel wasn’t super obvious, but an absolutely delicious gluten free brownie nonetheless!
