Berry Mixture:                                                       Batter topping:

4 medium size apples (Ettrick Gardens)                     1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 Tbsp cornflour                                                 1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup sugar                                                          2 tsp baking powder
4 cups boysenberries  (Ettrick Gardens)                     1/4 tsp salt
1/8 cup water                                                          50g butter
1 Tbsp butter                                                           3 Tbsp of milk (Holy Cow)
1 Tbsp lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 190C
  2. In a saucepan add the peeled, cored, and roughly apples to a touch of water and cook over a medium heat until tender.
  3. Mix cornflour, sugar, and water and add along with the boysenberries and cook on medium to medium high heat until mixture is thickened, about 15 minutes.
  4. Add butter and lemon juice.
  5. Pour into an 16cm baking dish.
  6. Prepare the batter by rubbing the butter into the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt mixture, until you get coarse breadcrumb texture.
  7. Add the milk and mix together quickly (I use a bread and butter knife) until the mixture just comes together.
  8. Bring the mixture together with your hands and pluck off even sized portions of dough and drop over the berry mixture.
  9. Bake 25-30 minutes at 190C.
  10. Let cool.
  11. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
