saucepan over a medium heat and cook until completely defrosted. Strain the berry and

keep the berry juice and berries separately.

4. Using four slices of bread, dip each slice one at a time into the berry juice, turning to coat.

Place, in a single layer, over the base of a 5cmdeep (2in), 18 x 18cm (7 x7in) (base) baking dish.
