Dutch Summer Pudding
Combine sugar, lemon zest, mint and 60 ml (¼ cup) water in a small saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves then bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Push lemon zest and mint through a fine sieve and return to syrup. Place syrup and strawberries in a blender and blend until smooth. Tip into a shallow bowl.
Lightly grease the presentation rings. Using a presentation ring, cut the brioche into 12 rounds. Dip each brioche slice in coulis then place inside greased presentation ring. Cover with a mix of fruit. Repeat this two more times, finishing with a brioche layer on top. Press down firmly in between the layers so that the coulis rises to the top. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours to firm up.
To serve, gently slide off presentation rings and garnish with remaining fruit. Dust with icing sugar and drizzle with remaining coulis.
