For the fruit filling

  • 800g seasonal apples these need to be peeled, cored and cut into small bitesized cubes. You can use Bramley apples if you like – whichever you prefer.
  • 150g (approx) blackberries – there’s lots of places in the UK you can forage blackberries – check out our blackberry picking guide here.
  • 1 heaped tbs brown sugar – I use soft brown sugar in this recipe

For the crumble topping

  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon – cinnamon goes so perfectly with apples and it smells deliciously autumnal as it cooks.
  • 150g soft light brown sugar
  • 200g butter – use unsalted butter, it’ll taste nicer.

How To Make Apple And Blackberry Crumble

It’s super simple to make this tasty berry apple crumble recipe – a delicious twist on a classic blackberry crumble

Step One – preheat the oven

Step Two – prepare the blackberry and apple

  • Whilst the oven is warming up simply scatter the apples and blackberries into the bottom of your crumbled dish.
  • And then tip over the heaped tablespoon of brown sugar. Stir the sugar gently into the fruit so that the fruit all has a dusty covering.

Step Three – mix up the crumble topping

  • Mix up the crumble topping. Add the flour and cinnamon to a large mixing bowl.
  • Tip in the butter and rub it into the mixture until you have a crumbly chunky breadcrumb type consistency. 
  • Then mix in the brown sugar.

Cooks Note! If you prefer your crumble topping with oats – grab our oat crumble topping recipe here and use that instead.

Step Five – put together the apple and blackberry crumble

  • Spoon the crumble topping over the fruit – don’t press the crumble topping down, keep it light and loose, you want the fruit to ooze up deliciously during cooking.
