This pudding-like German dessert is generally made with fresh red currants as the base. Adding other red fruits, such as raspberries, strawberries, and cherries, is common, but if doing so, use them in place of the second pound of currants in step 2. This dessert is also nice topped with creme anglaise instead of whipped cream.
Use day-old bread in this decadent dessert recipe from Cheryl and Griffith Day, owners of Savannah's Back in the Day Bakery, for best results. If you don't have any on hand, dry out fresh bread in the oven for about 10 minutes.
