Write a review
  1. 200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  2. 2 tsp cinnamon
  3. 140g cold butter, cut into small chunks
  4. 85g light muscovado sugar
  5. 1 egg, separated
  6. 700g Granny Smith apples, cored peeled and cut into 2cm cubes
  7. Juice of 1 lemon
  8. 150g blackberries
  9. 1 tbsp demerara sugar
  10. 40g butter
  1. Grease a cupcake pan with butter and heat oven to 180C
  2. Put the flour and cinnamon in a food processor, then add the butter. Process to make fine crumbs. Reserve 2 tbsp of the sugar, then add the remainder and briefly mix. Add the egg yolk and 1 tbsp water, then pulse to make a firm dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and briefly knead. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
  3. To make the filling, peel and core the apples, and cut each into 2cm pieces. Toss immediately with lemon juice in a large bowl, to prevent apples from discolouring. Place the butter and sugar in a large frypan over medium-low heat. When butter has melted, add apples and spices, then stir to coat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes or until apples have slightly softened, add blackberries and cook for a further 2 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  4. Roll out pastry to approx 1cm thickness. Cut rounds to fit cupcake pan. Cut smaller rounds for lids.
  5. Gently press rounds into cupcake pan and spoon in cooled fruit mix ( don't be tempted to spoon in hot fruit as this will affect the baking process of the pastry.) Brush a little water on edge of pastry and place lid on top. Brush with milk and sprinkle with some sugar.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.
  1. You can substitute blackberries with any seasonal berries
