Blackberry and Apple Crumble


  • Flour (I used self-raising)
  • Butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Blackberries
  • Bramley apple
  • Allspice or ground cloves (optional)


Preheat the oven to about 180°C or thereabouts.

Grease the bottoms of your dishes, and spread the blackberries out in them. Peel and chop the apple and add over the top.

Make the crumble topping: the amount of fruit and personal taste will determine how much crumble you need. General rule is you use twice as much flour as butter and sugar. Add the spice in as well  – it makes for a particularly autumnal taste.

Spread the crumble over the fruit, sprinkle with brown sugar on the top.

Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes; different ovens vary, so keep checking – when browned on top and you can hear the fruit bubbling, it’s ready to eat!
