Blackberry and apple crumble (with ice cream, of course) seems so appropriate at this time of year. The blackberries are hanging over the fence and the apples are ripe on the tree. I went into the backyard and picked a couple cups of blackberries and 2 Bramley apples to make this dessert.
Blackberry and Apple Crumble
- 2 cups blackberries
- 2 apples, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup sugar combined with 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup rolled oats ( I used quick oats)
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
I preheated the oven to 350F. Then put the fruit into a casserole dish, and added the sugar mixed with cornstarch and stirred it about. Then I put the butter into a bowl and cut the sugar and flour into it, then worked in the oats (you can rub it all together using your fingers). I covered the fruit with the oat mixture, and baked it for an hour.
This is a great dessert with ice cream or custard. I like ice cream in the summer and custard in the winter. How about you?
