I was out shopping with my boyfriend and I was chatting about what to make on my day off as I had to take my car to the garage. He said he would like a crumble so I said what do you want in it…answer Apple and Blackberry.
I’m not a cooked fruit person so crumble is not my thing at all but when I get a request for something then I will always do it. I did make two crumbles and I used different recipes because the first recipe I used said to cook the crumble before hand but something didn’t seem quite right to me.
Making two crumbles was also a good idea as lots of people wanted to some crumble. Everyone who had some of this crumble, said they enjoyed it.
My boyfriends dad said he was disappointed because I didn’t provide a little jug of juice that comes from heating the fruit up. He did enjoy it though.
- 300 g plain flour
- 175 g golden sugar
- 200 g unsalted butter
- 100 g porridge oats
- 450 g apples peeled
- 50 g golden sugar
- 150 g blackberries
- Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Place the flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs and once it resembles breadcrumbs add the oats.
- Cut up the apples into slices then add a layer of apples to the bottom of a ovenproof dish then sprinkle sugar over the apples. Cut the blackberries in half then add a layer to the dish then sprinkle sugar on the top of them. Repeat this until all the apples and blackberries are all in.
- Sprinkle the crumble mixture on top then bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the crumble is browned. Serve with cream or custard.
