Apple and Blackberry Crumble

Posted on Oct 29 2013 - 1:12pm by Ave

I remember that since I was a little girl, I loved to go berry picking. We spent hours and hours in the woods picking (and eating) wild strawberries, raspberries, whortleberries, and lingonberries. And afterwards we made some fresh jam, or used those berries in cakes and pies – oh, so delicious!

Here on our island, there are no places I know of, to go berry picking and it makes me very sad. So a week ago we had a family picnic. On our way to the picnic site, my husband had a great surprise waiting for me. He took me to pick blackberries!

There were several recipes I was thinking on making. We only had around 500 grams of blackberries, so I chose to make an apple and blackberry crumble first.

This recipe is perfect comfort food for those dark and cold autumn and winter days. The result is really delicious and I love the beautiful colour blackberries give to the crumble. Even my 1 year old loved it and asked for more!

 So here comes the recipe for a yummy apple and blackberry crumble!

  • 5 apples

It looks so absolutely scrumptious and reminds me of a pie we used to eat that I can no longer find anywhere. Great recipe – I’m saving this one.

  • great instruction. i love it.

  • Danellejohns

    This looks really good. Thanks to the local orchards and farmers markets, we have an ample supply of apples and blackberries. This would make a great dessert, especially with the cold weather now setting in. Also, thinking of trying Apple & Blueberry or some other variation. Thank you for the inspiration to make something instead of just freezing them and putting the fruit into muffins or bread.

    This looks delicious! Pinned to my dessert board! We love hot desserts!
