Hedgerow Crumble...

This year I have enjoyed many trips out searching hedgerow for ripe blackberries and apples to make delicious crumbles with...

Fruit freezes well, so you can prepare the apples and blackberries before hand and freeze them until you are ready to bake your crumble...

My favourite recipe is my own adaptation of Delia's Apple and Almond crumble...

This recipe will serve 6-8...

700g Hedgerow Apples
225g Hedgerow Blackberries
25g Light Brown Soft Sugar
1tsp of Ground Cinnamon

Crumble Topping:
1/4tsp of Ground Cloves
110g Whole Almonds
75g Butter
175g Self Raising Flour
2tsp Ground Cinnamon
110g Demerara Sugar

1. First peel and slice the apples into thick chunks and place them in a baking dish along with the blackberries, sugar, cinnamon and ground cloves. Mix lightly.
 2. Next make the crumble by adding all ingredients to a food processor and roughly blend.
 3. Now spread the crumble mix over the top of the apples and blackberries, pressing it down firmly.
 4. Finish by lightly running a fork over the surface of the crumble.
 5. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven at 200°C for 35-40 minutes and when the topping is golden
Serve with a scoop of natural yoghurt 
I hope you enjoy baking this crumble as much as I do!...

I would love to hear how you get on, or if you have any alternative crumble recipes which you enjoy making... 
so please leave a comment below...


  1. I love crumbles, you can't beat them. I make a lot of nigella recipes, have you tried her strawberry and almond one? Bit unusual with hot strawberries but it is Devine and the smell is out of this world, also there's a lovely one I've made with pears and mixing amaretto biscuits in the crumble....yum, now I'm hungry!

  2. Thank you for your comment Faith :) I havent tried Nigella's strawberry and almond one, I'll have to check that one out!.. Mmm the amaretto biscuit one sounds lovely! I'll try using them in my crumble topping next time! :) haha im hungry too now!

  3. I didn't receive your emails, so sorry x

  4. Hi Sarah,
    Its a shame you did not receive my messages. I tried to get in contact with you by leaving comments on my blog, your blog and 'hookinwithlaalaa' blog with my contact email.
    However as I did not hear back from you I contacted 'hookinwithlaalaa' and she helped set me up with a new partner. I hope you understand and I am sorry that we wont be doing the swap together.

  5. My mum has adapted her own version of Delia's too. She made us one on Monday and I have been eating it for breakfast ever since! M x

  6. Sounds good! Ours lasted about two seconds... I'll have to get started on another one :)


I really enjoy hearing your thoughts so why not leave a comment... I love reading them...
