September Delight - Blackberry, Pear & Apple Crumble

C loves his food. He will eat anything that we give him (excluding cucumber!). 
Last week, I made a delicious blackberry, apple & pear crumble. I wasn't surprised when he enjoyed this too! It's really easy to make, great for a beginner!


200g blackberries
350g pears
350g apples
125g butter
50g caster sugar
175g plain flour
pinch of cinnamon
75g demerara sugar

Firstly, pre-heat your oven to 200°C (gas mark 6) then peel and core your apples and pears and cut into cubes. 

OXO sent us out an apple corer & divider to help out with this task. Normally when I'm cooking, I will slice a finger. It's inevitable.

This is the greatest device ever. It cuts (excuse the pun) time dramatically. One push and I'm halfway there to having diced pieces! It cleans really easily too and is bigger than I expected!

In a pan, melt the butter over a low heat and add the apples, pears and caster sugar and cook until soft.

Add the blackberries to the pan. When they start to bleed and turn the butter red then transfer the mixture to an ovenproof dish.

In a bowl, add the flour, cinnamon, and some butter (as needed). Using your hands, rub the ingredients together to a breadcrumb texture. Add the demerara sugar and repeat.

Spoon the mixture over the fruit and bake for 30 minutes.



We all absoluted loved it and the whole dish was demolished in a matter of hours!
Will you be trying this out? Let me know how it turns out!
