For the filling

Cooking spray
700g frozen mixed berries, thawed
40g wholemeal flour
50g caster sugar
1 orange, zest finely grated (about 2 tsp)

For the topping

40g wholemeal flour
40g plain flour
2 tbsp plus 1 tsp sugar, divided
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp salt
30g chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
75ml lowfat buttermilk
2 tbsp rapeseed oil

1) Preheat the oven to 200°C/ gas mark 6. Coat a 20 by 20cm baking dish with cooking spray.

2) In a large bowl, toss the berries with wholemeal flour, sugar and zest. Transfer the berry mixture to the baking dish and set aside.

3) In a medium bowl whisk together the wholemeal flour, plain flour, two tablespoons of sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Cut in the butter using two knives or a pastry cutter until many small pebble-sized pieces are formed.

4) In a small bowl or pitcher, whisk together the buttermilk and oil. Add the buttermilk-oil mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Do not over mix. Drop the batter onto the fruit forming 6 mounds. Sprinkle with the remaining tsp of sugar.

5) Bake for 30 minutes, until fruit is bubbly and top is golden. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before serving.
