Fail Safe Sunday Crumble


For the filling:
60g Butter

60g Demerara sugar (plus extra to sprinkle)
2 large Bramley apples
20 cherries
250g blackberries

For the crumble:
100g butter

75g rolled oats
50g caster sugar
200g plain flour
50g barley flakes (You don’t have to add this, just gives it another texture)


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C.
  2. Melt the butter and sugar in a pan slowly.  Until it turns a light caramel colour.
  3. Core the apples and chop into chunks.
  4. Core the cherries and chop into half.
  5. Add the apples to the melted butter and sugar and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Add the blackberries and cherries.  Cook for a further 1 minute.
  7. Put the filling into an ovenproof gratin dish. Allow to cool while making the crumble
  8. Put the flour, oats, sugar and butter in a bowl, rub in with your fingers until it combined.  At this stage you can add a sprinkle more of oats.
  9. Spoon the crumble mixture over the fruit.  Make sure no fruit is visible as it could make the juices of the fruit overflow.
  10. Sprinkle over some Demerara sugar.
  11. Cook for 40-45 minutes… or until the crumble is crisp and you can see the juices of the fruit bubbling over.
