Apple and Fruits of the Forest Crumble –

A Perfect Dessert for any Time of Year

This recipe is for Apple and Fruits of the Forest Crumble. It makes for a more interesting (and colourful) alternative to the usual apple crumble and is best served warm with cream, custard or ice cream.  As well as being easy to make it is very versatile as you can use almost any other berries if you prefer, fresh or frozen. This makes it a perfect dessert for any time of year.


  • 550g apples
  • 200g fruits of the forest  ( I use frozen)
  • 45g  granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 125g plain flour
  • 100g rolled oats (or you can use all flour if you prefer)
  • 100g  soft butter
  • 45g brown sugar

To serve: cream, custard, ice cream

Optional: If serving with ice cream why not add some crushed toasted hazelnuts and serve with Salted Caramel Sauce.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the apples and the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to the boil and simmer for about 10 minutes or until soft. Add the frozen fruits and mix together.
  2. In a large bowl place the flour and add the butter in small pieces. Rub the butter into the flour with the tips of your fingers until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Then stir in the oats and sugar.
  4. Put the apple and berries mixture in a large ovenproof bowl ( any shape will do but I usually use one about 25cm x 20cm and 5 cm deep). Next place the crumble topping evenly all over the fruit.
  5. Bake in the oven for 20 – 35 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown. Serve warm with cream, ice cream or custard. Enjoy!
  6. If you’re feeling very indulgent you could also serve a little salted caramel sauce with it! The caramel goes really well with the ice cream and you could also garnish with a some toasted chopped hazelnuts too.

Individual Crumble Portions

If you prefer you can also make individual portions. These will take less time in the oven to cook and you can put them in small ovenproof ramekins. Again, if you would prefer to use a different combination of fruit, like pears instead of apples, that is also an option.

You could also make a crumble using the same weight of fruit without the fruits of the forest (see above) or but with frozen raspberries or fresh raspberries.

The addition of the oats gives a slight nuttiness and crispy texture to the crumble. You could also use a handful of crushed hazelnuts on top as an additional decoration.
