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.
