Spread the loaf slices with butter, then cut into triangles. Cover the top of the fruit with the bread slices, then scatter with the rest of the sugar. Cover with foil, bake for 10 mins, uncover the dish, then bake for 5 mins more until the fruit is starting to bubble and the bread is toasty. Serve with dollops of crème fraîche or fromage frais.
Saucy berries & ice cream
Just warm the fruit and the purée with sugar and a splash of booze in a saucepan – serve over ice cream and scoff with biscuits.
