This straight from Ireland fruit dessert is unbelievably delicious! The combination of juicy sweet Blackberries and tart Granny Smith Apples is just perfection. The buttery Oatmeal and Flour topping is heartier than a fruit ” crisp” would be and perfectly balances the fruit. Sparky and I were both so impressed that this one is going into my every day dessert rotation. Enjoy it plain as I did, or enjoy it topped with Whipped Cream or Creme Fraiche like Sparky. Either way, it is delectable. And BTW………..if you have a bowl for breakfast it’s fine. After all it is made with fruit and Oatmeal and to me that says breakfast! Don’t ask me how I know 😉
This Blackberry Apple Crumble is very easy to make and fast too. Not much more to it than slicing the Apples and combining Oatmeal, Flour and Butter with Sugar for the top.
Ready? This is what we’ll need.
Blackberry Apple Crumble
- 1-1/2 lbs Granny Smith Apples or other cooking Apples
- 9 oz Blackberries about 1 full Cup
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Tsp ground Nutmeg freshly ground is best
- 1 Cup AP flour unsifted
- 2/3 Cup Old Fashioned Oats not "Instant"
- 6 tbsp Butter cut in small pieces
- 1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
- Peel, core and slice the Apples, then spread in a 10 inch deep dish pie plate. An oval or round casserole dish will do just fine. Spread the Blackberries over the Apples
- Sprinkle the Sugar evenly over the top. Then sprinkle the Nutmeg over the Sugar.
- Place the Flour and the Oatmeal in a medium sized bowl. Toss in the Butter and with your fingers, rub the Butter into the Flour and Oats until crumbly and there are no large pieces of Butter.
- Stir in the Brown Sugar until well combined.
- Sprinkle the Crumb Topping evenly over the Fruit Filling
- Bake at 350° for 40 minutes until nice and brown on top and the Apples are tender.
- Scoop the cooked Crumble into individual serving bowls. Does that not look wonderful?!
- Add a good dollop of Whipped Cream or Creme Fraiche and enjoy!
