Could you make an apple pie using tropical fruit instead? Or would it be weird?

Erm it might but I think it would be odd. Could you make a flan or a trifle instead.

It would be a bit strange. I'd do a pavlova.

I think it would be ok. Perhaps if you have enough fruit you could make a grape pie and a mango upside down cake?

I would make a pastry flan case, fill it with creme patisserie and top it with the fruit.

That was meant to read creme patissiere.

Not sure I'd cook grapes, but that recipe seems to suggest otherwise. The rest of the suggestions made above sounds lovely.

While I've got fruit pudding ccoks on the thread, can I hijack, OP?
If I brought home up to 20 golden delicious, slightly past their best apples back from work, what could I do with them?

Dorset apple cake
Apple crumble
Eve's pudding

Baked apples
Apple turnovers
Apple and apricot cake (MARY berry one I think)
Good old crumble usually gets my vote though - and would work a treat with the mango too.

You can always stew them into fluff and freeze until you need them, so don't worry about apple overload!

More thinking about something I could take back into work for eating there. The dorset cake looks possible, as does the apple and aprocot. Thank-you.

Crumble is always much better with cooking apples, im(humble)o

It would be very strange to make an apple pie with anything other than apples!!
