Apple Blackberry Oat Crumble


4 large (about 1kg) Granny Smith apples, peeled,
cored and cut into 1-cm thick wedges
2 tbs caster sugar
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs water
½ cup rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
¼ cup plain flour
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
75g butter, softened and chopped
(+ extra for greasing)
200g blackberries


Preparation: About 25 minutes
Cooking: About 35 minutes
Serves: 4

1. Preheat oven to 200ºC. Lightly grease 4 x 1 cup baking dishes or 1 x 5-cup shallow baking dish (about 30cm long x 15cm wide) with butter.

2. Place apples, 1 tbs caster sugar, lemon juice and water in a medium saucepan. Stir to combine. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat for 10 minutes or until apples soften. Drain apples. Place in a medium bowl and set aside to cool slightly.

3. Meanwhile, combine rolled oats, brown sugar, plain flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Using your fingertips, rub in the butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

4. Gently stir blackberries and remaining 1 tb caster sugar through apples. Spoon fruit into prepared dishes or dish. Top fruit evenly with crumble mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until crumble is crisp and fruit is tender. Serve with vanilla ice-cream or thick natural yoghurt if desired.
