This tasty autumnal pudding is deceptively easy and tastes delicious. Kids can get involved with chopping (and tasting) the fruit and piling it onto the pastry. Feel free to swap out the fruit for whatever you have.
- 1 pack of puff pastry
- 200g blackberries
- 3 plums, sliced
- 2 apples, peeled and sliced
- 4 tbsp caster sugar and extra for sprinkling
- 3 tbsp cornflour
- Zest of an orange (or two satsumas(
- 1 egg white, beaten
1. Pre-heat the oven to 200c/180c fan.
2. In a bowl, mix the fruit, zest, cornflour and sugar until combined. Add a little cinnamon for extra autumnal vibes if you like.
3. Unroll the pastry onto a large baking tray and measure 5cm from the edge all the way round (we drew a rectangle lightly as a guide, scoring with a knife but without cutting through the pastry). The inner, smaller rectangle is where your fruit will go.
4. Pile up the fruit inside the middle of the pastry (the smaller rectangle) and fold the rest inwards. Feel free to get arty with the edges! You may want to cut a bit off the shorter sides so that the corners aren't too bulky.
5. Brush the pastry with the egg white and sprinkle with a good covering of caster sugar.
6. Bake in the oven for around 30 minutes or until golden. Serve warm or room temperature.
