This recipe is from one of my favourite cookbooks given to me by my good friend Julie.
It's called "Apples for Jam" and it is filled with lovely photos, heartfelt stories and amazing family recipes that are delicious.
This is supposed to be made with pears and blueberries but I've made it with all sorts of different fruits and it's just as good.
1 kg fruit
1 cup mixed berries
70 g sugar
200 g flour
50g brown sugar
150g softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
Generously butter a 36x22x 6cm ovenproof dish.
Halve the plums take out the pits and place them in the dish.
Mix in the berries and sprinkle half the white sugar overtop.
Mix together the the flour, brown sugar and the rest of the white sugar in a bowl.
Add the butter and vanilla and with your fingers rub the mixture together until you get a damp, sand like consistency.
Scatter the topping over the fruit to cover it completely .
Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is nicely golden.
Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream or ice cream.
