White chocolate and raspberry brioche pudding

Thanks go to Claudia who cooked this wonderfully light pudding for us the other night. I know at this time of year we have had our fill of rich food, but this is a marvellous dessert, so perhaps print off this recipe and keep it for February!  The raspberries cut through the sweetness perfectly. Claudia meanwhile, would like to thank Nadiya Hussain, 2015’s worthy GBBO winner, whose recipe this is. So would I. This one’s a keeper.
