  • 1 pt. mixture as for cornflour mould (opposite)
  • ½ lb. stewed fruit


Put a thick layer of cornflour mixture at the bottom of a mould. When set, place a tumbler in the centre, and fill the space between the two with cornflour mixture. When the mixture is firm, remove the tumbler, fill the cavity with stewed fruit, and cover with a layer of cornflour mixture. When set, turn out, and serve with custard or whipped cream.
