Strawberry and blackberry crumble

This delicious dish is a spin on a classic crumble recipe. 

By cooking the crumble and compote separately and bringing them together at the end you can enjoy the unique flavour of rosewater and elderflower and the crunchy texture of the crumble, too.

Give it an elegant finish by serving up in individual glass dishes – large wine glasses or glass tumblers will also do the job if you don’t have any to hand.

Prep time: 10 minutes    Cook time: 20 minutes  Serves: 6

Divide quantities in half if you are making for 2-3 people

You’ll need

  • 50g muscovado sugar
  • 65g ground almonds
  • 50g plain flour
  • 50g cold butter
  • 200g strawberries
  • 200g fresh blackberries
  • 12g caster sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp rosewater
  • 2 tbsp elderflower water
  • Fresh cream for serving

Method 

  1. To make the crumble, pour the muscovado sugar, ground almonds and flour into a roomy bowl and mix well. Rub in the butter until a lumpy, crumbly dough starts forming.
  2. Place the crumble mixture on a baking tray that has been lined with baking parchment. Bake for 20 minutes, then set the crumble aside to cool.
  3. Slice the strawberries into small pieces and then place in a saucepan with the blackberries, caster sugar, and lemon juice.
  4. Place on a medium heat and keep mixing, so as to form a soft compote syrup, mashing the berries with a wooden spoon. This should take around 8 minutes. Take off the heat to cool slightly and mix in the rosewater and elderflower cordial.
  5. To serve, place the strawberry compote syrup at the bottom of a serving cup or plate and sprinkle the crumble on top. Serve with fresh cream.
