  • 2 bramley apples, peeled, cored and cut into 3cm chunks
  • 2 conference pears, peeled, cored and cut into 2cm chunks
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 170g blackberries

For the crumble:

  • 125g plain flour
  • 50g porridge oats
  • 50g light brown soft sugar
  • 100g unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes
  • 50g hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 pinch vanilla powder (optional)
  • 1 tbsp demerara sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Toss the apples and pears with the sugar, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Stir through the blackberries, then scatter in an ovenproof dish (approximately 1 litre in volume) or individual ramekins.

  2. For the crumble, mix the flour, oats, sugar and a pinch of salt in a separate bowl. Using your fingers, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs with a few bigger chunks. Stir through the nuts and vanilla powder (if using).

  3. Flatten out the fruit as much as possible using the back of a spoon, then scatter the crumble on top. Sprinkle over the demerara sugar and bake until golden – 40 minutes for a large crumble or 25-30 minutes if using ramekins.

  4. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving, with lashings of double cream, ice cream or custard, if liked.
