Gluten Free Apple & Blackberry Crumble - Coeliac Sanctuary

Posted On: 13th August 2021

I love my berries and they always work spectacularly well in both hot or cold desserts. I especially love blackberries in a crumble (especially if you have some you can pick for free), even more so when paired with apple. Topped with a gluten free crunchy crumble, it's a perfect hot dessert, served with some creamy custard or even ice cream!

3tbsp caster sugar
100g blackberries

This recipe contains



1. Decore the apples and place on a plate, fill the middles with caster sugar (1tbsp in each) and place in the microwave. In a 750W microwave, the apples will soften after around 8-10 mins, for a 650W you will need it in for slightly longer.

2. Once the apples have softened, remove from the microwave and scoop the soft flesh from out of the skin into a bowl along with any sugar that has run onto the plate.

3. Put the blackberries in the bowl with the apple and mix with a spoon gently crushing the blackberries so they start to break down.

4. Place the fruit into an oven proof dish and make the crumble.

5. To make the crumble, in a bowl place the flour, butter and sugar and rub together with your hands until you get a crumbly consistency, place this on top of the fruit and place in the oven for 30 mins on gas mark 4 until crumble is browned.
