Blackberry and apple crumble

This classic crumble is easy to make and a perfect recipe for the late summer months, when hedgerow blackberries are abundant.



  • 50g butter
  • 50g oats
  • 50g plain white flour
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 300g cooking apples
  • 200g Blackberries washed and drained
  • Cinnamon, ginger and allspice to taste


  • Step 1

    Peel, core and dice the apples.

  • Step 2

    Arrange with the blackberries into the base of a medium-sized ovenproof dish. If you prefer a sweeter crumble, sprinkle the fruit with a little sugar.

  • Step 3

    In a large bowl, using your fingertips, mix the sugar, oats, flour, spices and butter until it has the consistency of breadcrumbs. If it is too sticky, add a little more flour.

  • Step 4

    Spread the topping over the fruit evenly, making sure all the fruit is covered.

  • Step 5

    Bake at 180°C for about 45 mins, or until the topping is golden and the fruit is bubbling up.

Serve hot with ice cream, custard or cream.
