Apple Crumble with Mixed Berries



  • 1 lb apple (granny smith would do good)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • Grated rind of 1 orange
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup mixed berries (blackberry and raspberry)
  • Pinch of cinnamon

For the crumble topping

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons butter cut into small pieces
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup crushed almond (I used slivered almonds which I crushed with my hand)


  • Pre heat oven to 350F
  • Peel and core the apples and thinly slice them and then cut each slice diagonally into 2 pieces
  • Add butter to a skillet and when it starts sizzling add apples and brown sugar and cook on low flame until apples are slightly cooked (make sure apples does not become too soft and mushy)
  • Mix in the grated orange rind and cinnamon.
  • Spread the apple mixture into a baking pan and sprinkle the berries on the top
  • Pour orange juice all over the fruit mixture
  • To make the crumble topping, mix flour and butter until they become like coarse bread crumbs
  • Mix in sugar and crushed almond
  • Spread the crumble mixture over the fruit base
  • Press the topping lightly
  • Bake for about 45 minutes or the crumble topping is lightly browned

  • Note: if the topping does not turn brown, increase the temperature to 400F and leave for about 5 minutes or less to get the topping browned
  • Yields: 5 – 6 servings as a dessert
  • Serve topped with a scoop of ice cream or with fruit topping.  You can also serve this with a spoonful of custard
