The leftovers from my hedgerow jelly making needed to be used up, so pie or crumble? The other half wanted pie but, to he honest I couldn’t be bothered making pastry this evening, so crumble won, (it wasn’t a difficult decision). This is really no special crumble. It’s basic but comforting to eat.
3 medium cooking apples, cored, peeled and chopped small
2 cups of blackberries
4 tbsp sugar
For the topping:
4 heaped tbsp plain flour
4 heaped tbsp oats
3 tbsp sugar (I like brown)
75g butter melted gently
Put your oven on 180C. Combine the fruit and first lot of sugar and place in your baking dish, set to one side.
Place the flour, oats, and sugar in a bowl and roughly mix. Melt the butter and mix in to the dry ingredients with a fork until it starts sticking together and resembles a ‘crumble’. Spread the topping evenly on the fruit, ensuring it’s all covered. Bake in the oven for 30-40 mins until golden brown.
