This crumble includes blue cheese, adding a savoury bite to enhance the dessert's flavour.
3 large cooking apples
125 ml (1/2 cup) fresh blackberries
1 pkg (175 g) blue cheese, crumbled, divided
250 ml (1 cup) superfine sugar, divided
175 ml (3/4 cup) plain flour
75 ml (3/4 cup) butter
15 to 30 ml (1 to 2 tbsp) demerara sugar (optional)
Vanilla ice cream (optional)
Heat oven to 180 C (350 F).
Peel, halve and thickly slice apples. Place in the base of an ovenproof dish with blackberries, half of the blue cheese and half of the superfine sugar.
In a separate bowl, rub butter into flour until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs; stir in remaining superfine sugar and blue cheese.
Scatter crumble mixture evenly over fruit. If desired, sprinkle with a light coating of demerara sugar.
Bake for about 25 minutes until top is golden brown and fruit begins to bubble up through the crumble.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
Makes 6 servings.
