I thought this was delicious. It is a bit like a firm bread and butter pudding that you can cut it into wobbly slabs. It is very east to do and you could use any type of cooked or even tinned fruit and any type of chopped dried fruit. I made mine with just apples as I had no pears and threw in some dried apricots as well. It did need extra cooking time but that is due to my oven, I think.
