Tue, 9 October 2018

Apple & Mixed Berry Crumble

 

(Serves 8)

 

A crumble is a very traditional dessert but one which is always very popular. This dessert can be frozen very successfully and retained until required at a later stage. There are a couple of stages in its preparation but it definitely worth it

 

Compote:

4 large cooking apples-peeled and diced

5oz/150g fresh or frozen mixed berries

4oz/110g caster sugar

2 tablespoon water

 

Place all ingredients into a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil for 3-4 minutes.

Crumble:

6oz/175g plain flour

4oz/110g butter

4oz/125g brown sugar

Pinch cinnamon

 

Rub all ingredients together until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

 

Assembly:

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4

½ fill an ovenproof dish with apple and mixed berry compote

Scatter with some the crumble topping

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until the topping is golden brown and the apple and berry mixture is bubbling through the crumble topping.

 

Serve (to much delight) with custard and whipped cream!
