Blackberry Crumble

Updated: Oct 10, 2019

If you see any blackberries left (or some defrosted ones will do fine) stick them in this crumble recipe with a couple of apples and thank me later! (Well actually, you can thank The Hairy Bikers - I can take absolutely no credit for this recipe!) Enjoy!


3 eating apples, peeled,

Quartered and cored

2 Bramley cooking apples, peeled

Quartered and cored

2tsp cinnamon

100g demerara sugar

300g blackberries

175g plain flour

1tsp cinnamon

140g soft brown sugar

35g porridge oats

180g cold unsalted butter


Put the quartered apples in a bowl and shuffle them around to mix them up a bit. Mix the cinnamon with the sugar in a separate bowl. Put half the apples in an oven dish and sprinkle with a third of the sugar mixture. Add the blackberries and sprinkle with the second third of sugar mixture. Cover with the remaining apples and add the remaining sugar and cinnamon mixture.

To make the crumble topping: Put the flour and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well, then stir in the sugar and the oats. Cut the butter into small cubes, add to the mixture and rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture is the texture of breadcrumbs. Lay the crumble mixture on top of the fruit.

Preheat the oven to 170°C, gas 3 and bake the crumble for about 40 mins. Keep an eye on the top. The sugar should go golden, not black. Serve with homemade custard.
