Rub flour, oats and butter in (will seem like there is too much butter, but biggish lumps are ok - twill be fine). Add sugar and crumbled pecans.
Spread 2/3rds of mixture into a tin with greaseproof paper or a liner, pat it all down so it comes together. Spread fruit over, then add the rest of the mixture on top. Press down firmly. Sprinkle over demerera sugar. Bake at 170 for 35 mins.
Once cooled, cut up. I use a swiss roll/traybake tin.
My boys love them, they have them for breakfast, as a snack during the day or for supper.
Well my mum took the dc's out picking blackberries so I simmered these with lots of sugar to make a kind of syrup. And then when we roasted a rack of lamb, I skimmed off the fat (i hate lamb fat) deglazed the roasting dish with red wine. i then made a roux in a small pan and added the deglazed pan juices and some stock and cooked it out and then I stirred in some of the blackberry syrup to finish. It was delicious.
Stewed bb's and apple in the microwave - peel and chop apples, put in plastic jug with sugar (a good sprinkle)and splash of water, cover and blast on high for four minutes until mushy. Then add blackberries and blast for another two minutes. Serve hot with icecream or cold with custard - yum!
