This delicious, versatile crumble recipe works with any soft, summer fruit you can find in the hedgerows.


  • Enough berries to cover the bottom about 2 inches deep in your dish.
  • 1 tbsp Soft Brown Sugar
  • Grated rind of 1/2 Lemon
  • 170g (6 oz) Plain Flour
  • 100g (3 1/2 oz) Cold Unsalted Butter
  • 55g (2 oz) Golden Caster Sugar


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees (355 degrees fahrenheit).
  2. Sprinkle the soft brown sugar and the lemon rind over the berries in your chosen (oven proof) dish. Set aside while you make your crumble topping.
  3. To make the crumble, cut the cold butter into small pieces and add to a large bowl with the flour. Using your fingers, rub the butter and flour together. It should start to form a very lumpy, sandy consistency. Large crumbs that cling together. Basically, it should look like crumble cooking, but uncooked. Repeat with the sugar.
  4. Sprinkle your topping over the fruit making sure all of the berries are covered.
  5. Cook for half an hour until the top is golden. 


  1. Delicious served with vanilla ice cream.
