Winter Berry and Coconut Crumble

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.
