This has to be one of the simplest and most impressive puds when you have large groups of friends or family to entertain.

  • 225 g (8 oz.) blackberries
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken into large pieces
  • 8 cloves
  • 2-3 star anise, depending on size
  • 1 orange, juice only
  • 50 g (2 oz.) butter, diced
  • 50g (2 oz.) light muscovado sugar


Method

  • Arrange the pears, plums and blackberries in a roasting tin.
  • Sprinkle with the cinnamon, cloves and star anise.
  • Spoon the orange juice over, dot with the butter then sprinkle with the sugar.
  • Bake in a preheated oven 190°C (375°F) Gas Mark 5 for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.
