  • 3 tbsp cornflour
  • grated rind of orange and lemon
  • juice of 1/2 orange and 1/2 lemon
  • 1 1/3 cup seedless raisins
  • 1/3 cup Demerara raw sugar
  • 1/2 pint water
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 oz walnuts chopped
  • 8 oz puff pastry


  • Blend the cornflour, fruit rinds and juices in a pan. Add the raisins, sugar, water and salt. Mix well.
  • Cook over a gentle heat, stirring until the cornflour thickens. Cook for a further 1 - 2 minutes. Add the walnuts and leave to cool.
  • Divide the pastry into two pieces, one slightly larger than the other.
  • Roll out the larger piece and use to line a 20.5-cm (8-inch) sandwich tin, making sure the pastry reaches the rim. Put in the raisin mixture.
  • Fold the pastry edges over. Roll out the remaining pastry for a lid. Dampen the pastry edges and cover with the lid, sealing the edges well.
  • Trim and finish. Bake in the oven at 200°C (400"F) mark 6 for about 40 minutes.
  • Serve warm with pouring cream.
