Foraged Apple and Blackberry Crumble

Apple and blackberry crumble is one of the best things about autumn.

Sharp, sweet, crunchy and gooey. Decadent, yet homely, this really is an irresistible classic.



Its a wonderfully simple recipe, but never fails to give spectacularly yummy results.  



For molten, rich, melt in your mouth, deliciousness, start by preparing your fruit. 



You will need:

  • 550g of chopped apples 
  • 200g of blackberries 
  • 50g caster sugar 
  • Little bit of butter

Chop your apples, and add them to a sauspan with a small amount of melted butter. Add your blackberries and sugar, and leave to simmer, stirring every now and then, for about 5 mins. Then add them to your serving dish. 


Set aside, and get going on the amazing crumble. In my mind there is nothing worse than a stingy amount of crumble, so I make lots!! 

You will need:

  • 300g plain flour
  • 240g butter 
  • 2tsp backing powder
  • 12 tablespoons sugar 
  • 2tsp cinnamon 

Either wiz it all up in the food processor, or, if you generally like things a little more on the rustic side like me, rub everything together with your fingers and scatter evenly over your fruit. 


Cook on a medium heat heat for about 30 mins. Bring the crumble out when you can see the fruit bubbling. 



There is then always a life changing debate in my family…ice cream or custard?

Eat with some wickedly rich vanilla bean ice cream if you are like me. The contrast between the hot and the cold just can’t be beaten (it’s the best!) 

If you’re a custard lover like my mum and sister…I don’t understand you…

Or if you’re like my dad you have a generous helping of both and have done!

Would love know which camp you belong in!?
