  • Cut the rind and core from the pineapple and take spiral slices off the outside to remove the eyes.

  • Cut the flesh into chunks. Peel the mango, cut it in half and cut the flesh from the stone (pit) in slices.

  • Divide all the fruit, including the blackberries, among four l4 cm gratin dishes placed on a baking sheet and set aside.

  • Heat the wine and sugar in a pan until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes.

  • Put the egg yolks in a large heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and whisk until pale.

  • Slowly pour on the hot sugar syrup, whisking all the time, until the mixture thickens.

  • Preheat the grill (broiler).

  • Spoon the mixture over the fruit, Place the baking sheet holding the dishes on a low shelf under the hot grill until the topping is golden.

  • Serve hot.

  • Tips & Variations :- 
  • Although boiling drives off alcohol in the wine, children do not always appreciate the flavour; so substitute orange juice if making the gratin for them. White grape juice or pineapple would also work well.
