Miss Katherine’s crumble recipe


We had a great time picking blackberries and making our mini crumbles!  Here is the recipe we used.

2 lb Cooking apples (we used blackberries as well)

6oz Flour

2oz Demerara

3oz Butter

Place the flour and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time, rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Butter an ovenproof dish. Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.


Bake in the oven at 180C until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling.

Serve with thick cream or custard.
