Apple and Blackberries Crumble is a delicious traditional rustic fruit convination. In this recipe you will find one with a crunch touch for topping. Serve with a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream.

Ingredients

  • 5 cooking apples – peeled
  • 2 cups blackberries (use other fresh berries if you choose)
  • 5 tbsp golden castor sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 star anise
  • ⅓ cup of water
  • ½ cup whole almonds – roughly chopped
  • ⅓ cup desiccated coconut
  • ⅓ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 120g unsalted COLD butter
  • A pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180℃.
  2. Peel, core and slice the apples into eighths. Place them into a saucepan with two tablespoons of sugar, a cinnamon stick, star anise and water. Cover the saucepan and cook for 3 minutes (you dont want them too soft, just enough to cut some of the bitterness from the apples).
  3. Remove the cinnamon stick and star anise and place the apples (without the liquid) in a baking dish. Add the blackberries and give them a very gentle stir.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the chopped almonds, coconut, two tablespoons of sugar, salt, flour and oats and mix till evenly dispersed.
  5. Cut the cold butter into small cubes (about 1.5cm) and using your fingertips, pinch the dry ingredients into the butter until no flour is left without a yellow tinge. Make sure there are still several clusters of butter scattered through the mixture about the size of an almond. (These are my favorite bits!)
  6. Scatter the crumble mixture evenly of the top of the fruit and sprinkle an optional tablespoon of sugar over the top of it all.
  7. Bake in the oven for approximately 50 minutes at 180℃ or until cooked to your liking.
