Neil thinks this is the best crumble I’ve ever made! Probably because I’ve made the topping extra luxurious and doubled up the butter for more crunch! The crumble topping is thick and crunchy with a hint of sweet coconut coming through.
It’s a dream with the Winter berries. Do you have yours with cream or custard?
500g frozen mixed berries
Tablespoon caster sugar
For the topping
225g plain flour
150g butter – diced
100g soft brown sugar and 1 tablespoon to sprinkle at end
1 tablespoon desiccated coconut
Tablespoon rolled oats
Pre head oven to 190c / 170c fan ( I used a 9 inch round dish)
Place your frozen fruit in your baking dish and sprinkle over the tablespoon of caster sugar
In a separate large mixing bowl mix your flour, butter and sugar. Get your fingers and hands in and rub together between your thumb and forefinger to form a crumbly mixture.. When you have a bowl of crumbly mix add the coconut and stir to combine.
Pour your crumble over the fruit and pat down a little. Sprinkle over your oats and tablespoon of soft brown sugar.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 35 minutes.
It will smell heavenly and is perfect served with hot custard, double cream or ice cream.
