A warm and comforting Thermomix Blackberry and Apple Crumble which is easy to prepare and can be made with a few ingredients from a well stocked pantry and fridge.
Today I’m bringing you yet another delicious crumble – Blackberry and Apple, a comforting and brilliant combination.
The humble crumble, one of England’s national treasures has to be one of the easiest desserts to make with the help of the Thermomix. There’s not much to it and you can use any fruits you like, my other favourites being Apple Crumble & Rhubarb Crumble.
For this recipe, I’ve used frozen blackberries as they are far cheaper and are in supply all year round. I love going to Costco and buying loads of bags of frozen fruits to keep in the freezer for Smoothies and frozen desserts (my Mango Sorbet with Mint & Lime is seriously good!).
How to Make Blackberry and Apple Crumble Step by Step
Firstly, peel and core the apples into 2-3 cm cubes and place into a baking dish. Then add the frozen blackberries and toss in some brown sugar and cinnamon.
To make the crumble topping in the Thermomix, add the butter, sugar and flour and mix for 15-25 seconds/speed 5 until the mixture resembles wet sand. Scatter over the blackberry and apple filling and press down gently with the back of a fork.
Bake in the oven for 40 minutes until golden brown and the blackberry and apples begin to bubble to the surface.
You can enjoy this crumble all year round but it’s especially warming to have in winter with some piping hot custard.
A deliciously heartwarming Blackberry and Apple Crumble made with the help of the Thermomix.
For the Filling
2 apples, peeled and cut into 2cm cubes
250g frozen blackberries
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Topping
160 g plain flour
115 g chilled butter, unsalted
80 g brown sugar
2 tablespoons of oats, to sprinkle on top
Preheat the oven to 180°C fan forced.
For the Blackberry & Apple Filling: Peel and core the apples and roughly cut into 2cm cubes. Place into a medium size baking dish (mine measured 16cm x 23cm) then add the blackberries, sugar and cinnamon. Toss to combine.
For the Crumble Topping: Weigh the flour, butter and sugar into the TM bowl and mix for 15-25 sec/speed 5. (It should look a bit like sand but be careful not to over mix or it will become pastry!)
To Assemble: Pour the crumble topping evenly over the blackberry & apple filling and press down gently with the back of a fork. Scatter over the oats.
Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until golden brown.
Serve immediately with piping hot custard or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This crumble can be made ahead and baked when needed.
