Foragers Blackberry And Apple Upside -Down Pudding

The foragers season is closing fast so the other day when cycling back down the sloping lane with the sun shining I stopped as soon as I saw the blackberries! Lucky for me I was carrying a suitable container.


200/3 1/2 caster sugar ( put into 100 g piles)
200g/7oz blackberries
1 Large cooking apple
200g/7oz butter or low far spread unsalted
3 free-range eggs
200g770z self raising flour or plain if you only have that ( but if you use plain flour be sure to use baking powder )


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

Heat 100 sugar in a saucepan until it begins to caramelise, add the blackberries and cook for 4-5 minutes , or until softened. Set aside to cool.

For the base , cream the sugar, then fold in the flour.

Layer the sliced apple in the bottom of a suitable pudding tin i.e. a brownie run in my case.

Spoon the caramelised blackberry mixture into the cake mixture and fold in or you can spoon this onto the apple if you wish then spoon the cake mixture on top.

Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until risen and golden-brown.


  1. That looks amazing. Blackberries are my favorite. I need to make this asap. Thank you for sharing.
    I wish I could eat it now. Yum.

  2. Ooh I like the look of this - I might just have to make one this afternoon. I think all the blackberries have been picked around here though so I may have to innovate and use rhubarb instead !

  3. This sounds lovely! I miss blackberry foraging (buying them reduced at the supermarket just doesn't count!) :)

  4. I missed most of the blackberries nearby to me this year.

  5. That looks yummy hun, tbh never tried Blackberries, but would like to x
