  1. Step 1:

    Put the flours and butter into a processor and blend it until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

  2. Step 2:

    Add the icing sugar, egg and cold water and blend again until the mixture forms a ball. Wrap and chill for 15 minutes.

  3. Step 3:

    Heat the oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6) . Gently mix together the plums, blackberries, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.

  4. Step 4:

    Take a large sheet of baking parchment and roll out the chilled pastry on to it using a floured rolling pin to a 30cm (12 inch) circle. Lift the paper and pastry onto a baking sheet.

  5. Step 5:

    Pile the prepared fruit into the centre of the pastry and fold the pastry edges up and over the fruit.
