My grandmother used to make the most fantastic apple and blackberry crumble. Sadly I don’t have her recipe but this one is as close as I’ve managed to get to it.

Apple and Blackberry Crumble Ingredients

500g Bramley apples, peeled, cored and chopped

75g butter, cubed
40g granulated sugar

How to make apple and blackberry crumble

  • Preheat oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6.
  • Place the apples into a saucepan and add the water. Bring to the boil then cover and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  • Drain the water and add the sugar and blackberries. Mix well then turn into an oven proof dish.
  • To make the crumble, sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the butter. Mix together with your fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs then stir in the granulated sugar.
  • Spread evenly over the apples and blackberries and back for 35 minutes or until the crumble is a light golden brown and the apples have cooked through.

Serving suggestions…

Serve with either double cream, custard or vanilla ice cream on the side.


Try different kinds of fruit to make an alternative dish. Pear and plum work well as do peach slices. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
