Hi, have a large tub of this which needs to be used.sure i can chuck it on top of the frozen wedges i have in the freezer if it comes to that, but would far rather make a yummy cake with it!

Any other ideas!

45g walnuts , finely chopped (I used almonds)
60g brown sugar

Sure wildflower, here you are.

Alison Holst's SOUR CREAM FRUIT PIE
For 4-6 servings.
1 x 23cm (9”) uncooked piecrust
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 egg
½ cup sour cream
halved canned peaches, apricots, pears, very well drained

In a small bowl mix the brown sugar and flour.Add the egg and sour cream, and beat with a fork or rotary beater until the mixture is free from lumps.
Arrange the fruit pieces, cut-side down, on the uncooked pie shell.Pour the egg and cream mixture around the fruit.
Bake at 220°C (425°F) for 10 minutes, then at 180°C (350°F) for 15 minutes, or until the filling has set.
Serve hot, warm or cold.
Note:When this pie comes out of the oven, it may be puffy in the middle.It will fall as it cools.It is best to make this pie a couple of hours or less before serving it, because the fruit and custard shrink away from each other on standing, leaving gaps.Raw fruit may replace the canned fruit but it must be really ripe and of dessert quality or it will not be sweet enough.
My Chocolate Pear Adaptation:
1 x 23cm (9”) uncooked piecrust
4 household tbsp brown sugar
