Autumn Harvest Fruit Crumble Crunch

Serves 2-4

Topping:

  • 100 gms sliced brioche – broken up by hand
  • 30 gms almond flakes or nibs
  • 30 gms demerara sugar
  • 15 gms porridge oats
  • Pinch each of ground cloves and cinnamon
  • 50 gms unsalted butter

Fruit:

  • 3-4 desert apples
  • 75 –100 gms blackberries or raspberries
  • Desert spoon granulated sugar
  • 50 mls apple juice or water
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Pinch cinnamon

Method:

Peel, core and chop the apples quite small (approx ½ inch pieces), place in a bowl and toss in the lemon juice to stop discoloration.

Heat the apple juice or water in a saucepan, add the sugar and dissolve before adding the chopped apples and a pinch of cinnamon. Cook with a lid on for about 7-10 minutes until the apples are starting to soften, add the soft fruit and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until the juices from the berries flow.

Remove pan from heat.

Place all the topping ingredients into a food processor and pulse until crumbed.

Heat a good sized non stick fry pan, add the butter and when foaming add the crumb mix, stir and cook until mixture is a nice golden brown and all the butter is absorbed. Remove pan from heat.

To serve, spoon the hot fruit mixture into serving rings placed on hot plates, leaving most of the juices still in the pan. Fill the ring ¾ full then spoon some crumb mix on top to fill the final ¼; lightly firm down. Spoon some of the fruit juices around the ring, place a dollop of crème fraiche or whipped cream on top and carefully lift off the rings to serve.
