This is our go-to dessert in winter as it’s a guaranteed hit with adults and kids. We use bags of frozen berries when we’re out of time because no pre-cooking is required but you can also use strawberries, cooked apples, pears, rhubarb, quince or all of the above.
The quickest way to make the crumble mixture is with a food processor. You’re aiming for a breadcrumb texture here so be careful not to overprocess it or you’ll end up with more a pastry.
Don’t stress if you don’t have a food processor. The traditional method of mixing the crumble ingredients with your fingertips works perfectly well too.
This recipe serves 6-8 people.
- 800-1000g of frozen berries/fresh berries/cooked fruit
- 100g almond meal
- 100g butter
- 100g of rolled oats
- 100g soft brown sugar
- 50g poppy seeds
Preheat the oven to 180℃ (fan-forced). Place your frozen berries/fresh berries or cooked fruit into an oven roasting dish (we used a 20 x 35cm) and even out the surface. Add all other ingredients to a food processor and whizz until you have a breadcrumb texture then pour over the top of the fruit and gently even out the topping.
Place in the oven for 30 minutes or until the top is golden and the fruit is bubbling. Serve with natural yoghurt, vanilla ice cream or cream.
