Top Billing recipe for fruit crumble

Winter Recipe Wrap-Up:




Winter Fruit Crumble Slice
A delicious recipe that can be the base for spiced fruity fillings such as allspice and pears or vanilla and quinces

(serves 8-10)


450g mixed dried fruit
100g dried figs
1t ground allspice
1t ground cinnamon
100ml brandy
200g castor sugar
pinch salt

Pastry:
250g butter
¾ cup castor sugar
1 egg
1t baking powder
2¹/3 cups cake flour
²/3 cup corn flour


Place all the dried fruit and spices in a bowl and add the brandy. Add enough boiling water to cover the fruit and allow to soak overnight in the refrigerator. For the pastry, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg followed by the baking powder, flours and salt. Press ²/3 of the dough into a greased baking dish and refrigerate. Strain the fruit and reserve the liquid.

Roughly chop the fruit and set aside. Place the liquid in a saucepan, add the sugar and heat until dissolved and the syrup is light golden brown. Moisten the fruit with a little syrup. Spoon the mixture onto the base and grate the remaining ¹/3 of the dough over the top. Bake at 170°C for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with nutmeg custard and a chilled sweet wine.
