Blackberry Apple Charlotte Sandwich

I love the lanes that surround where I live , they are my lifeblood my salvation and my sanctuary and I feel bless and very very lucky to live here. I am as I always saying surrounded my countryside I am a toes dip into suburbia but it s countryside suburbia and I have a farm at the bottom of my road. It is not unusual to have chicken crossing the road and a pheasant thinking it is road runner. Though I have yet to see one ,Roe deer hide in the woodland nearby ,where the badgers gently root around.

So here we come onto a Blackberry Apple Charlotte not your usual Charlotte but more of a sandwich where a jam filling.


400g Blackberries / 14 oz
10 slices any old bread (crust cut off , save crusts for breadcrumbs)
110g / 40z caster sugar
A couple of apples chopped  ( I only had one big one it seems a poor crop on the old apple bush this year)
Enough melted butter to to the bottom layer of the Charlotte.


I preheated the oven to 220C/425F/Gas mark 7.

Next I heated the blackberries, chopped apple and sugar along with 2 -3 tablespoons of water. I gently heated them the blackberries and apples had softened.

Next I took the saucepan off the heat, I got a square brown tin and lined the button with slices of bread with the crusts off ( soaked in butter)

Making sure there we no gaps , I then worked my way round the edges.

Spooning you can hold off on some liquid if you wish but I promise you it will turn into a most beautiful jam/ jelly when baked.

Then seal the top of what will become your sandwich , you down have to soak these slices in butter if you don't wish I didn't

Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes and then serve with cream .

Share or don't share the choice is yours !

I might share but be quick. !
