Time 1h35m

Yield 16 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 10

Ingredients:

  • 750 g plain flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 225 g margarine or 225 g shortening
  • 250 g butter
  • 250 g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling if required
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 550 g currants
  • 1 teaspoon ground mixed spice
  • 5 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons custard powder, mixed with a little water to form a thick, smooth paste

Steps:

  • Make the pastry by sifting flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add butter and shortening/margarine and using your fingertips mix together till the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. This may take a little while as this makes a lot of pastry, stick in there and it will all come together. Stir in the sugar then add the beaten egg. Mix together until the ingredients bind together making a soft dough. Knead the dough lightly till smooth then wrap in cling and chill for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  • Meanwhile make the filling by placing currants, mixed spice and sugar in a large pan and cover with just enough cold water to cover the currants and no more. Bring this to the boil and simmer gently for no more than 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and gradually add the custard powder paste stirring until the fruit mixture has thickened slightly, it will thicken even more when cold.
  • Preheat your oven to Gas mark 3/170oC. Grease a 18cm x 30cm swiss roll tin and line with non-stick baking paper, although mine was ok without it.
  • Divide pastry in 2 and roll out one half on a lightly floured surface and line the tin with it, pressing the pastry over the base and sides of the tin. Brush the edges with a little water.
  • Spoon in the fruit mixture, spreading it evenly over the base, packing it down well. Roll out the remaining pastry to a rectangle larger than the tin and lay this over the filling and pat down lightly.
  • Using a sharp knife trim away excess pastry from the edges and crimp the edges for decoration. Cut 2 slits in the centre of the pie and bake in the oven for 50 - 60 minutes or until the pastry is cooked and golden. Sprinkle with caster sugar when hot then leave to cool and serve warm or cold in slices.
  • Optional topping: Instead of the sugar you can cover it with white glace icing. It must be a thick mixture applied in a thick layer to the pie when it is cold.
