Nothing says summer like a warm seasonal fruit creation cooling off on a window sill. So after stocking up on some ripe mulberries and a lovely pineapple I decided to try my hand at a classic recipe of mine.
Mix 6 tablespoons of butter, half a cup of brown sugar and a half cup of fresh milk with one large egg and a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. When that silky mixture has married combine a cup and a half of good quality all-purpose flour along with a teaspoon and a half of baking soda. Throw in your fruits of choice at random and sprinkle over some sugar. 45 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees and you got yourself one of the most heart-warming pies money can’t buy.
