Here's one of the recipes we cooked together at this week's class. A yummy, warming crumble - perfect for a cold winters night!
Apple and Blackberry Crumble
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30-40 minutes
1.5 kg apples, peeled and roughly chopped
1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
zest and juice of ½ orange
2-3 tablespoons liquid honey
½ cup brown sugar
1 cup fine rolled oats
¾ cup ground almonds
75g butter, diced
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
Yoghurt, cream or ice-cream, to serve
Preheat oven to 180 °C.
- Place apples, blackberries, orange juice and zest in a pot. Simmer, uncovered, stirring frequently, until apples are soft – this will take about 15 minutes. Sweeten to taste with honey.
- Spoon stewed fruit into a medium-sized baking dish.
- Combine brown sugar, rolled oats, ground almonds, butter, cinnamon powder, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Rub the butter into the mixture with your finger tips, until it resembles breadcrumbs. Spoon crumble topping over the fruit mixture.
- Bake until the topping is golden and crunchy, about 30 minutes.
Serve with yoghurt, cream or ice cream.
