Super Quick Mixed Berry Crumble
This is a super easy recipe and can be thrown together quickly and easily when you are in need of a sweet treat.
The crumble topping recipe is estimated because having made this for so long I don’t really measure it as such. Your topping wants to be like moist breadcrumbs and if in doubt go for more fat not less. I love adding oats to my crumble but you can simply use more flour if you don’t like oats. Seeds are also optional.
500g mixed frozen summer berries
3oz chilled unsalted butter cut into cubes
3oz caster sugar
3oz plain flour
2 large tablespoons of mixed seeds
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees or gas mark 6.
Pour the fruit into the casserole dish and sprinkle a heaped tablespoon of sugar over the fruit. Read the rest of this entry
