  • 1 1/2 cups (330g) caster sugar

  • 500g frozen mixed berries

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk

  • 2 tbsp whisky

3 Method / Steps

Step 1

Preheat oven to 160C. Place the apple, juice and 1 cup (220g) sugar in a small pan and cook over low heat, stirring, for 3 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Cook for a further 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until the apple softens slightly. Cool, then stir through berries. Transfer to a 1.25-litre baking dish. Set aside.

Step 2

Whisk eggs, milk, whisky, lemon zest and vanilla in a bowl until combined. Set aside. Place fl our, baking powder and remaining sugar in a bowl. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients, whisking well to form a smooth batter. Pour over fruit, then bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and firm to the touch.

Step 3

Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with cinnamon cream.
