Frozen berries are a great alternative to fresh: they are very cost-effective and no less delicious. Be sure to get an unsliced loaf of bread, so you can slice it very thinly yourself.

  • Frozen mixed berries, 600 g, fresh or frozen
  • Castor sugar, granulated, 3 tablespoon(s), or powdered sweetener
  • White bread, 140 g, trimmed, unsliced day-old bread
  • Greek yoghurt, low fat, 400 g

Method

  1. Place the berries and 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan, then cover and bring to simmering point. Cook over low–medium heat for 5 minutes or until the berries have softened and released their juices. Stir in the sugar or sweetener, then leave to cool to room temperature.
  2. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut the bread into very thin slices – the thinner you can make them, the better. Place half the bread over the base of a 22 cm × 16 cm baking dish, breaking off pieces of bread to fit and cover the base. Spoon over half the berry mixture, spreading to cover the bread. Place the remaining bread in a single layer over the top, then spoon over the remaining berry mixture.
  3. Cover the dish with plastic wrap, then refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled. Spread the yoghurt over the top, then serve.
