Blackberry & Apple Crumble Recipe
Today I thought I’d share my Apple and Blackberry Crumble recipe with you. This is hands down one of my favourite desserts, with the perfect mixture of crunchy topping and sweet soft fruit underneath. When Autumn comes around, there's also nothing better than getting out into the countryside to pick your own blackberries to make your crumble that little bit sweeter - the perfect Sunday afternoon activity!
- For the Filling
600g bramley apples
120g demerara sugar
- For the Topping
150g plain flour
120g cold unsalted butter
45g demerara sugar
25g soft brown sugar
80g porridge oats
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
Peel and core the apples. Next, chop the apples into small chunks.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon for the filling.
Add the apples and blackberries to a pie or lasagne dish, ensuring to sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mix throughout the layers.
Cut the cold butter into small cubes.
Add the butter to the flour in a large bowl and then rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs – I like to leave a few lumps of butter so that the topping is not too fine. Add the porridge oats and sugar and mix thoroughly.
Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the fruit.
Place dish on a tray and bake for 45 minutes.
Allow to cool for a few minutes and then serve with cream (or ice cream/custard if you prefer).
Hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think in the comments.
