An autumnal dessert that begs for lashings of thick yellow custard or to be drowned in cooling cream. You’ll be fighting over the last spoonful of that crumbly, golden topping.

Ingredients:

for the crumble topping:

120g plain flour

60g caster sugar

60g unsalted butter at room temperature, cut into pieces

for the fruit compote:

300g Braeburn apples

30g unsalted butter

30g demerara sugar

115g blackberries

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Method:

(preheat oven to 190*c)

for the crumble:

– combine flour and sugar in a large bowl

– add butter and rub into the flour and sugar with your fingertips until you form a large crumb – don’t overwork the mixture

for the compote:

– peel, corn and chop the apples into 2cm cubes

– melt together butter and sugar in a saucepan over a medium heat until a light caramel

– stir in the apples and cook for 5 minutes

– add blackberries and cinnamon for 5 minutes

– cover and remove from heat, then leave to stand for a further 5 minutes to cook in the residual heat

– spoon warm fruit into an overproof dish and cover with crumble mix

– bake in over for 25-30 minutes, until bubbling and golden on top

– serve with vanilla ice cream of thick vanilla custard
