Now that we have plenty of apples and Mr HfH has been blackberry picking; the next logical step is baking.... I came across this recipe a while ago, but it only had the apple, I added the blackberry and it is rather good, you could experiment with other fruits. Its great warmed with a dollop of creme fraiche or cream or just simply on its own with a nice cup of tea. It has a consistency of a bread pudding, but is quite light - hope you enjoy it.
115g Caster Sugar (adjust sugar to your liking)
2 heaping teaspoons cinnamon
125ml vegetable oil
4 Cooking Apples
A couple of handfuls of blackberries
200g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking baking powder
A little demerara sugar
Preheat oven to 180°.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and oil.
Peel and slice or rough chop the apples and along with the blackberries add to mixture in bowl making sure you coat it well without breaking down the fruit.
Sieve the flour and baking powder and add to the ingredients in the bowl. Mix well until all of the flour is absorbed by the wet ingredients.
Pour mixture into a greased one 9x13" or two 9″cake tins and sprinkle a little demerara sugar.
Bake for approximately 55 - 60 minutes until golden brown, leave to cool in cake tin until cold.
