Recipe by Millereg

The fruit used in this dessert can be almost any kind - most typical in the U.K. are cooking apples, rhubarb, gooseberries, plums, damsons, blackberries, raspberries or blackcurrants. Combinations are typical too such as blackberry and apple. You can even used canned or frozen fruits instead of fresh if you prefer.

Very Nice Miller!!! made this for Sunday dessert changed it just a bit by using splenda instead of sugar. White for inside and Brown with the butter on top. Very easy and quick to make and a lovely not too sweet taste. I will use it a lot during the winter with the berries we have in the freezer. Thanks for sharing!!!
