Crumble is the best and in just 3 easy steps you have a beautiful dessert that everybody loves. You can substitute the apples and blackberries with any fruit you like. Pear and cinnamon or rhubarb and vanilla are other personal favourites. This recipe creates a beautiful slightly thickened sauce that you can spoon over ice cream, if you desire.
2 punnets fresh blackberries
1 large granny smith apple, peeled and cut into small chunks
1 tbs plain flour
2 tbs castor sugar
100g unsalted butter, cut into pieces (plus a little extra to dot the top)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbs organic rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Pre heat oven to 200C.
Mix together the blackberries, apple, flour and castor sugar and stir well to coat and place in a buttered dish.
In another bowl combine the brown sugar, rolled oats, flour and baking powder and using the tips of your fingers to rub the butter in the flour mixture. When it’s rubbed in nicely, and looks like chunky breadcrumbs, pour the crumble over the fruit mixture. Dot with the extra butter and bake for 20 -25 minutes until golden.
