Berry Crumble

Easy and delicious recipe, can be prepared in less than 40 minutes and is a perfect dessert.



200 gr of granulated sugar (you can use 100 gr of white sugar and 100 gr of brown sugar)

350 gr of flour

Half teaspoon of baking powder

A pinch of salt

250 gr of butter (at room temperature)

Cinnamon to taste

For the filling:

500-600 gr of berries (they can be forzen)

An apple cut in pieces (it will help tp absorb the juice of the berries)

3 tablespoons of berrie jam

A splash of vanilla essence

A tablespoon of cornstarch


Mix the berries and the apple (cut in pieces) in a bowl, add the mermelade, the vanilla essence and the corntarch; stir carefully and set aside.

To make the crumble:

Mix the flour, sugar, salt, the baking powder and the cinnamon; then add the butter cut into small pieces and mix with your hands until you get the crumble (kind of little balls of sand)

In a mold lined with baking paper, place some of the dough, squeeze it with your hands until you cover the whole surface of the mold. Pour the berries mixture on top and spread well, on top of the berries spread the crumble covering again the whole surface. Bake at 180º C for about 30 minutes or until you see the crumble is getting a golden color.

Allow to cool completely before taking out of the mold, otherwise it will break. You can put it in the microwave for a few seconds before serving (with cream, chocolate or vanilla icecream, my favourite)

It is a light dessert and not too sweet, perfect for after having a big meal.

Apple Crumble

Hi all!,
Although we  are already in June, the summer wants to make us wait for a while before settling down for good. That´s why I thought that this pie, originally from England, would be the perfect company for a rainy day.
Here I tell you my particular version for the Crumble Pie:
4 apples
Brown sugar (I didn´t use so much, so you can add what you like)
60 gr butter
200 gr flour
Honey (2 tbsp)
Oatmeal (optional)
1º) Start peeling the apples and cutting them in small cubes. Then, mix the apple cubes with 2 tbsp of brown sugar, 1 tbsp honey, cinnamon and 1 tbsp of oatmeal.
2º) In a separate bowl mix the flour, 2 or 3 tbsp brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. We mix all the ingredients, and here is the funny part, we mix it with our hands so we´ll get a crumbly texture. We can let this mix cool down in the fridge for 10 minutes.
3º) After taking our crumble mix out of the fridge, we spread it on top of the apple cubes generously and add some cinnamon. Bake at 170º C during 30-40 minutes, depending on the oven until the crumble is a bit browned.
That´s it!! we have our yummy crumble pie. It can be served warm or cold and it tastes great with vanilla ice cream.
I really like the combination of apple with cinnamon, smells great and the taste is even better!! You can also bake strawberry or red fruit crumble.
And what about your favourite version of apple crumble? How do you make it at home?
