    Mille®'s Note:

    In medieval times, a baked dessert like this would have been sunk in the embers of a log fire with a cauldron or pot upturned over it to form a lid.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 1/2 lbs mixed soft summer fruit (raspberries, loganberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, redcurrants, grapes)
    • honey or brown sugar
    • 3 ounces toasted hazelnuts
    • 3 ounces whole wheat breadcrumbs


    1. 1
      Put the fruits in a pan or microwave dish with about 1 inch water in the bottom and cook gently for 10- 15 minutes (4- 6 minutes in microwave), or until the fruits are soft without being totally mushy.
    2. 2
      Sweeten to taste with honey or brown sugar (Saxons would have used honey); how much you need will depend on what fruits you have used.
    3. 3
      Drain the excess juice and save to serve with the pudding.
    4. 4
      Chop the hazelnuts in a processor or liquidiser until they are almost (but not quite) as fine as the breadcrumbs, and then mix the two together.
    5. 5
      Spoon the fruit into an ovenproof dish and cover with a thick layer of hazelnuts and crumbs.
    6. 6
      Bake in a moderate oven 350F for 20 – 30 minutes or until the top is slightly crunchy and browned.
    7. 7
      Serve with lots of cream or plain yogurt and the warmed fruit juices.
