Initially this was going to be just blackberries, but I didn’t have enough, so threw in a punnet of plump blueberries. It worked out beautifully and have made this exactly the same again, but you could also use other berries for this dish.
This is perfect comfort food. I made this on a rainy Sunday afternoon, and the Chief Taster was lucky to be left any. One tablespoon of the delicious berries with the almond topping hit the right notes and I reached for a larger spoon under the guise of “research taste testing”. Then had to stop myself before the Chief Taster came home to an empty pie dish and me asleep on the sofa.
This is just superb with a serving of cream. The Chief Taster is very much a pudding man, and this is now a request on a raining, grey day. I am wondering about making this with strawberries and raspberries. I think frozen fruit would be okay too, if you did not have anything fresh to hand. Either way, it’s a yummy comfort food dish!
