it's just oh wants to try raspberry but i wasn't sure if i'd do it the same as say apple

I expect the raspberries will go to a mush. I would mix them with something more solid like apple.

raspberry is fine, maybe not banana or grape wink

I had raspberry, pear and apple the other day in W'spoons, twas yum

Fruit may disintegrate a bit too much with raspberry alone, maybe do half and half raspberry and apple?

I agree. That would be delish! Served warm with clotted cream. <<drool>>

I've just made a blackcurrant (from our garden) and apple one today and it was lovely.

Banana and apple is lovely. I don't think banana would work on its own.

Upside down pudding is good with tinned pears too. I've got a recipe somewhere.

Plums are lovely in crumble, especially if you put some flaked almonds into the crumble mix.

Don't do a crumble with just Blueberries as you end up with all crumble and rather dry blueberry skins

but then I might have done something wrong

70s book so its in imperial I'm afaid

Topping - 1oz butter, 1 oz sugar creamed
8 half pears (or other fruit)
Cake - 4oz butter or marge, 4 oz sugar, 4 oz flour, 2 eggs, teaspoon cinammon

Rub in flour and marge, mix in sugar, beat in eggs, add cinammon. Line 18cm square tin with greaseproof paper. Spread topping over paper, add a layer of fruit, pour cake mix over fruit.
Bake at 345 F for 45 mins.

Doesn't say which flour but I assume it is S/R
