Wheat Berry Pudding 

Wheat Berry Pudding

The wheat berries must be soaked overnight, then boiled until tender.

The ratio of wheat to water is generally 1:3, so if I’m making 1 cup of wheat berries then I’ll add 3 cups of water. However, I strongly recommend that you keep checking on your wheat berries every 10-15 minutes in case you need to add a little bit of more boiling water. You will also need to give the wheat berries a stir every now and then, as they’re known for liking to stick to the bottom of the pot!


  • – 3 cups water –
  • 1 cup wheat berries
  • – Two sticks of cinnamon
  • – Three stars with anise
  • – ½ teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • One tsp ground anise.
  • – One teaspoon of fennel powder
  • – A quarter cup sugar, or to taste
  • – One cup chopped dried fruit


  1. Leave the wheat berries in the water overnight, then rinse them with cold water until the water runs clean.
  2. – Bring the whole spices and water to a boil in a pot. After the wheat berries have partially cooked, add the ground spices and dried fruit, and continue cooking for a further 15 to 20 minutes, or until the wheat is soft and fully cooked.
  3. – Typically, the entire cooking process takes thirty to forty-five minutes.
  4. – Nuts: walnuts, almonds, pine nuts, pistachios; – Pomegranate seeds; – Desiccated or shredded coconut

– Fennel candy and candied chickpeas.
