Berry Fruit Pudding Recipe

This is a recipe for Blackberry Roll. A very fruity pudding it is filled with apples, blackberries and a slight taste of the exotic with the addition of cinnamon.

Blackberry Roll Pudding

8oz blackberries
1 medium cooking apple (peeled, cored and finely diced)
3oz raisins
6oz white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Continued after sponsor message:

1 teaspoon lemon juice
knob of butter
2oz flaked almonds
8oz shortcrust pastry
2 tablespoons cold water
glaze (beaten egg or milk)

Place the fruit, cinnamon, lemon juice, water and the butter into a saucepan and simmer gently, stirring regularly. The mixture should thicken until it is of marmalade (or thick jam) consistency. Cool the mixture then add the almonds. Pre heat the oven to 400F.

Roll out the pastry (on a lightly floured surface) forming a rectangle (which will be rolled). Brush this very lightly with the glazing agent. Allow to dry then spread the fruit mixture evenly over the pastry. However, leave approx. 1/2 inch from EACH edge bare. Roll the pastry up into a roll (similar to Swiss roll)

Seal the edges with water and glaze the outside of the roll. Place on a baking tray (greased baking sheet is better) and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden. Allow to cool slightly and serve with custard or cream.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
