Apple and blackberry crumble

My participation in #thegreatbloggerbakeoff may be patchy (for dieting reasons) but with this week being dessert week and because I went blackberry picking over the weekend I couldn’t resist making a delicious apple and blackberry crumble. It’s an autumnal favourite and no shop-bought crumble ever tastes anywhere as nice as this homemade version!

What I used

For the filling:

  • 2 apples, peeled and cubed (I used Granny Smith apples)
  • 200g freshly picked blackberries
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 30g demerara sugar
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

For the crumble:

  • 200g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 130g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 120g brown sugar
  • A handful of flaked almonds

The method:

  1. Toss the peeled and chopped apples in the flour and demerara sugar.
  2. Layer the apples together with the blackberries in an oven proof dish.
  3. Start on the crumble topping by mixing the sieved flour, salt and brown sugar together. Then rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  4. Layer the crumble topping over the fruit and sprinkle the flaked almonds over the top for added crunch.
  5. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes at 180°C (fan) until the topping is crunchy and golden.

  1. Homemade crumble is the absolute best – I’ve never actually made it myself but my gran does it all the time! Maybe I’ll need to give this one a go 🙂 x
