  • 450g fruit, chopped into 1cm chunks (we used 400g Bramley apples and 50g fresh blackberries)
  • 75g granulated sugar
  • 50g butter, cold and cubed



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 100g plain flour
  • 50g demerara sugar


  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Mix together the fruit and granulated sugar (you will need less sugar for canned fruit) so it’s evenly coated. Tip into a pie dish where it fits snugly.

  2. Rub the butter into the flour to make a light breadcrumb texture. Do not overwork it or the crumble will become heavy. Add in the demerara sugar until combined and spread over the fruit until completely covered. 

  3. Bake for 35-50 mins until golden brown and bubbling, and the fruit is tender. Leave to cool for 5 mins before serving.

Personally from my experience this no where near covers the fruit base of a 8 by 5 inch dish. My recommendation is double up on these ingredients and you should be ok.

Does this go in the oven? I've never made a crumble that doesn't go in the oven.

Yes it does, gas 5/170 for about 35/40 minutes check though beforehand, I have cooked microwave, not bad that way too.
