600gGranny Smith apples(approx 5 apples - peeled, cored and quartered)
100gcold salted butter(cut into cubes)
Prepare the apples by peeling and removing the core. Then cut the apple into quarters or large slices. Don't cut the apple too small otherwise it will not hold its shape once baked.
Place the apples and blackberries into an oven-proof dish. Spoon over the caster sugar and mix well to combine then set aside.
Make the crumble topping by first placing the flour, sugar and cold cubes of butter into a large mixing bowl. Rub together gently to form a breadcrumb like consistency.
Spoon the crumble over the fruit ensuring an even layer. Place in a pre-heated oven at 200C/180CFan and bake for 40 minutes until the top is golden brown.
Serve with custard, or a scoop of ice cream.
