Anybody can bake this delicious seasonal recipe. I would normally bake this at this time of year as my neighbour offers me her windfall apples from her trees in her garden and I often use the blackberries from the bushes around our village in Cloonrane that I collect when walking with the kids. This year however blackberries weren’t so plentiful and apples were. The ones I used were left into Milltown community centre.


6 medium size apples

2oz/50g caster sugar

3 dessert spoons of water


6oz/180g flour

2oz/50g butter

2oz/50g caster sugar


  • Pre heat oven at 180◦c/gas mark 4.
  • Put sliced apples in a saucepan with the water and sugar and cook until soft, then place in cake tin.
  • Rub flour butter and sugar together until the resemble breadcrumbs.
  • Cover the fruit with the mixture.
  • Bake for 30 mins.


Eat with a healthy dollop of cream or custard and enjoy!
