Recipe – Blackberry & apple crumble (#GreatBloggersBakeOff2014)

Now in my opinion, you can’t beat a good crumble. Usually good for autumn & winter, but it’s perfect for our ‘summer’ at the minute! We had acquired some fresh apples & blackberries so I thought I would use them together in a crumble for Sunday dessert. The oats in the topping make it extra crunchy.


Ingredients (serves 6)
Filling

  • 250 g blackberries
  • 4 large apples, cored, peeled & diced
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice

Topping

  • 240 g plain flour
  • 120 g butter, room temperature
  • 120 g caster sugar
  • 50 g porridge oats

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas 5/375F/190C.
  • In the bottom of a large baking dish, place the blackberries & apples making sure they are spread evenly.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon, mixed spice, and sugar evenly over the fruit.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, butter, sugar, and oats until they resemble breadcrumbs. Get your hands right in there!
  • Sprinkle the mixture over the top of the fruit, spreading evenly.
  • Bake for 45 minutes until the topping is crunchy and golden brown.
  • Enjoy (with custard or ice cream)!
This is my entry to the #GreatBloggersBakeOff2014, theme of dessert – linking up with Mummy Mishaps (though I’m not out for a star baker accolade this week as this is nowhere near the featured recipes – just something I knocked up on Sunday and I won’t have time now before I go away to do one of those – enjoy anyway!).
