  • Alfa One cooking spray
  • 550 gram canned apple pie filling
  • 2 cup berries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot
  • 115 gram butter
  • 1 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 2 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup milk


  • 1
    Preheat barbecue grill to medium. Spray a heavy-based frying pan or well-seasoned skillet with non-stick spray. Mix pie filling, berries, sugar and arrowroot together; pour into pan or skillet.

    Rub butter into flour with fingertips, then add remaining dry ingredients. Stir in the milk to form a thick batter that will drop off the spoon.

    Place skillet onto grill to heat and dollop spoonfuls of batter over fruit. Close the barbecue hood and reduce heat to low. Cook for around 25 minutes or until the topping is puffed and lightly golden. Serve warm or cold.


  • Heating the fruit while adding the topping helps the topping to cook from the bottom up. Remove leftovers from the skillet as acids in the fruit can interact with the iron pan, spoiling the flavour.
