Blackberry Crumble

Last weekend, I went blackberry picking with my boyfriend. Our Saturday was a surprisingly warm and sunny one, and so, we decided to make the most of it.
My boyfriend had absolutely filled our container to the very top with blackberries, and as we returned home to wash them, we came to realise we had plenty more than expected...

As you can see, I didn't take many photos of it before it was all scoffed up...In fact, I made another one which my dad enjoyed with his daily dose of rice pudding. I love how old fashioned he is when it comes to his food and rather plain diet! If you were wondering about the recipe, here it is...


500g Bramley Apples
500g Blackberries
175g Demerara Sugar 
Lemon juice
A sprinkle of cinnamon

For the topping

200g plain flour
175g butter
50g Demerara sugar
120g muesli 

Peel, core and chop the apples up. Make sure your blackberries have been thoroughly washed too! Place in a saucepan with lemon juice and sugar. Put them on a medium heat until the sugar has mixed in nicely. Don't heat for too long - that's why they go in the oven!

Place your fruits in a pie dish.
Mix the plain flour, butter, sugar and muesli together to form a crumb like mixture. Pour your crumby mix on top of the fruits and bake in the oven for 45 minutes on 200 degrees. 

And there you have it!

  2. Blackberry crumble is the best! My friend's mum made it over summer with apple in it too, nicely rounded off with cornish clotted cream - delicious (: xx

    1. Oooh Cornish clotted cream! Sounds delicious :)
      I'm not a typical crumble fan, but this one won me over!
      I had crumble with some bio yogurt at my boyfriend's dad's house. That was yummy!
