Cooked berry dessert

A cooked berry dessert, requiring only the most modest of gestures. Why slightly heated? Because the fruit is more digestible. Great for when you have leftovers of cake.

Serves two gluttons

150 g blackberries
150 g boysenberries
1 teaspoon (teaspoon!) of rapadura sugar
1 madeleine (or pan di spagna or a piece of cake)

Take a pan, turn up the heat, add the washed fruit, sprinkle the sugar on top. When the fruit starts to sizzle, let cook for a few minutes. Scrape the fruit together, make sure the mixture doesn't burn or dry. Whenever the boysenberries are soft, that's your key to serve one big spoonful per person.
