Light and easy, our cherry and plum brioche jam pudding makes the perfect summer dessert. It's like bread and butter pudding, but we've spread the brioche slices with jam rather than butter. Using brioche gives this dessert extra special finish and is similar to the French dish Pain perdu. Pain perdu translates as lost bread. This is because stale bread or brioche is used to make the indulgent dessert. We recommend that you choose an extra fruity conserve with lumps of cherry inside. We used Waitrose morello cherry extra fruity preserve which worked a treat. The lumps of cherry made our brioche and jam pudding extra delicious. Serve with ice cream or double cream for a luxurious finish but it's tasty on its own too.
