    Blackberry Compote with Griddled Brioche

    Don’t let the embers die without having a quick sweet fix. This recipe is easy to prepare, looks pretty and tastes fabulous.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 8


    • 750g blackberries
    • 4 tbsp crème de cassis liqueur
    • 75g golden caster sugar
    • 1 vanilla pod, split
    • 8 slices from a butter brioche loaf, sliced
    • ½ x 200ml tub crème fraîche


    1. Cut 2 squares of thick foil, about 40cm x 40cm. Pile the blackberries on to 1 square. Bend the sides up slightly, drizzle with the cassis and sprinkle with the golden caster sugar. Add the split vanilla pod and top with the second foil square. Fold in the edges to create a loosely sealed bag.
    2. Place the foil parcel on to the barbecue grill for about 15 minutes, or until the parcel puffs up (or cook in an oven preheated to 200°C, gas mark 6 for 15-20 minutes). Meanwhile, put the brioche slices on the barbecue for 1 minute on each side until toasted and lightly griddled.
    3. Serve the blackberries on the toasted brioche and top with crème fraîche.
