    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 150g caster sugar
    • 280g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
    • 160g butter or margarine
    • 1 egg
    • 1 (200g) tub raspberries (or you can use jam)
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • 3 tablespoons cornflour

    Method
    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Combine the 150g sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, butter and egg. You can do this in a mixer, or just with your hands! Dough will be crumbly.
    3. Pat half the mixture into the bottom of a baking tray, to a depth of approx 1cm.
    4. Mix the raspberries (or other fresh fruit) with the tablespoon sugar and cornflour, and use a form or spoon to gently squash the fruit. (If you don't like your raspberries tart, then add another tablespoon sugar). Spread fruit mixture over the the mix in the tray.
    5. Crumble the remaining flour mix over the fruit.
    6. Bake until golden, about 45 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then cut into squares. Will keep 4-5 days in a airtight container . . . if it lasts that long!

    Tip

    This works well with fresh or frozen strawberries, plums, cherries, blueberries, or a mix of what you have left! The amount of fruit does not need to be exact, as long as it covers the crumb base. If you don't any fruit, a layer of jam works as well.

    I did these in an 8" x 8" square tin, with raspberry jam and a sprinkle of caster sugar on top before going into oven. Absolutely gorgeous, so easy to make. - 28 Sep 2013
