Apple & Blackberry Crumble
I'm thrifty, frugal, skint, whatever you want to call it, so when I see punnets of fruit on offer because their best before date is that day I snap them up and freeze them, if possible. I quite often find blackberries on offer like this. I thought I'd try making a crumble with them for a dinner party. I found this BBC Good Food recipe that uses muesli, and since I had just shy of 120 g getting-a-little-bit-old homemade granola needing used up I thought I'd give it a go. Success! This will definitely be a regular pudding in our house, despite the quantities of demerara sugar used (we'll ignore the unhealthiness of that and concentrate on the fact it's got plenty of fruit in it - part of your 5-a-day!). Delicious!
I've decided, since this recipe is made entirely from scratch, to add this to Javelin Warrior's Made with Love Mondays food blogger challenge. This is my first time entering this challenge. I heard about it via Lavender & Lovage via Twitter. Hello! <introduces self> :)
900 g bramley apples
175 g demerara sugar
225g plain flour
55g demerara sugar
125g homemade apple & cinnamon granola
Peel, core and coarsely chop the apples. Mix with the blueberries and arrange, sprinkling with the demerara sugar, into a large casserole pan.
Using your fingers rub the butter into the flour in a bowl. Leave some lumps of butter so it isn't too fine. Mix in the sugar and granola. Sprinkle over the top of the fruit and bake at 200C for 45 minutes or so. Serve with fresh cream.
