Method

  • 1. Place the apples and apple juice in a saucepan on a medium heat and cook for 10 minutes, or until the apples are soft.

  • 2. Mix the reserved boysenberry juice and corn flour together to make a paste. Add the paste to the apple mixture and simmer until the mixture is thick. Stir in the boysenberries. Set aside to cool.

  • 3. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Grease and line a 30cm x 20cm slice pan.

  • 4. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla essence and beat well.

  • 5. Fold in the flour and baking powder until combined. Press two-thirds of the mixture onto the base of the prepared pan and top it evenly with the boysenberry mixture. Top with the remaining one-third of the pastry mixture and press down gently.

  • 6. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the top comes out clean. Leave to cool in the pan before cutting it into squares. Serve with whipped cream.
