Air fryer blackberry & apple crumble
Whether you’re on the side of cold (ice cream or cream) or warm (custard), we can all agree that crumble is a winter winner! Using an air fryer allows you to cook it more efficiently with minimal mess and helps create an extra crisp crumble crust, too.

1kg Bramley apples (about 4-6), peeled, cored and cut into 2cm chunks
50g caster sugar
½ lemon, zest and juice
vanilla ice cream, custard or double cream, to server
150g plain flour
100g chilled unsalted butter, cubed
75g caster sugar
50g porridge oats
½ tsp ground cinnamon
First, make the crumble. In a medium bowl, use your fingertips to gently rub all the ingredients together until evenly combined (you’ll have mostly small chunks with a few larger ones) and put in the fridge. .
Put the apple chunks and blackberries in the base of the air-fryer basket (without the rack). Toss through the sugar, lemon zest and juice, and 2 tbsp water with a pinch of salt; spread out evenly.
Scrunch the chilled crumble mix together then loosely scatter over the fruit to cover (this will help give you different-sized crumble pieces). Air-fry at 180ºC for 1 hour, covering with foil after 25 minutes if needed, until golden and well cooked and the fruit is very tender and piping hot. Serve immediately with ice cream, custard or cream.
