Bees love circling this sweet fruit, but when I was a girl no one stopped me from climbing the mulberry tree that my uncle had at the back of his home, not even the bees.

Time: one hour and 15 minutes

  • 100 g sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 450 ml milk

  2. Mix the 100 g of sugar and maize flour together in a bowl for later.
  3. Place the black mulberries in a bowl and pour on it 50 ml of melted butter, and spray the mixture of sugar and maize flour. Shake the black mulberries well to cool. Spread black mulberry mixture at the bottom of the dish.
