Madeira summer pudding with warm chocolate sauce

I cannot bring myself to eat white soggy bread. With that in mind, I took a little culinary artistic license and used Madeira loaf, which adds sweetness.

Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla pod, seeds only (or a few drops of vanilla extract)
  • 175g/6oz soft light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp dark rum, port or a blackcurrant liqueur
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1kg/2lb 4oz fresh summer berries (such as a mixture of raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and redcurrants), stalks removed
  • 2 Madeira loaf cakes
  • small handful of fresh mint leaves, for decoration
