  • Pre-heat the oven to 190°C, Gas 5.
  • Place the apples, sugar and lemon into a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  • Cook until the apples are half cooked, then remove from the stove.
  • Spoon carefully into a 25cm x 5cm (roughly) deep baking dish
  • Sprinkle over the fresh blackberries.
  • Place the cold butter and flour together in a food processor.
  • Pulse until the mixture is at fine breadcrumbs, then tip into a bowl.
  • Using a spoon mix in the sugar. This way around ensures that the mixture does not cake up, but keeps the crumble nice and loose.
  • Spread evenly over the apples and blackberries taking care not too pack down leave nice and domed.
  • Bake in the pre heated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until nice and golden.
  • Remove and cool before eating.
  • I serve mine with custard, double cream, clotted cream or vanilla ice cream.
