Ingredients
  • 50 g (28 oz) blackberries split into 2 equal piles
  • 250 g (8 oz) shortcrust pastry
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornflour (corn starch) or plain flour
  • Icing sugar to dust (optional)

Instructions
  1. Line a flan dish with the pastry.
  2. Mix together the sugar and flour in a bowl. Add in half of the blackberries and toss well.
  3. Pour the floured/sugared blackberries into the flan case and spread around evenly.
  4. Bake at 210°C for 10 minutes, then 180°C for a further 25-30 minutes. Stir the blackberries halfway through cooking to ensure no flour or sugar is visible.
  5. Remove from the oven and press a layer of blackberries into the hot jam. Allow to cool.
  6. When cool, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.

Titli’s Tips
Wild blackberries tend to be sweeter than shop-bought blackberries so it’s worth looking in the hedgerows for them!
