Recipe by mich76

this is a recipe by annabel langbein (hope i spelt her name right!!) it is so yum dusted with icing sugar or served warm with ice cream and you can use whatever fruit you like - i'm making it with peaches and nectarines for christmas day YUM It makes a huge amount - the size of a roasting dish or you can make it in muffin tins and reduce cooking time to 25 minutes. It also freezes really well which is good for when you feel like a quick easy desert - just thaw and heat in oven
