Scottish Recipes - Apple and Bramble Crumble

This is merely one of a collection of Scottish recipes which will grow over time. Many of the recipes are traditional dating back many years, with the original creator lost in the mists of time. Apples give this dish a tart sweetness whereas the blackberries (brambles) give it a lovely colour and sweetness. This is a sweet dish, which is quite a heavy pudding and is traditionally served on cold winters evenings (although these are mainly summer fruits)

Apple and Bramble Crumble

Recipe Ingredients:
1 lb cooking apples (peeled and cored)
8-10 oz blackberries
4-6oz granulated sugar(according to taste)
For the Crumble:

4 oz flour
2 oz porridge oats
pinch of salt
4oz butter or margarine
4oz demerara sugar

heat oven to 375F. Mix the apples(slice first) and blackberries and put in a pie dish. Add the sugar according to taste and a little water.

For the crumble, place all the ingredients (EXCEPT SUGAR) in a mixing bowl and work together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Then add the demerara sugar and sprinkle this new mixture over the fruit. Bake for approx. 15 minutes and then reduce the temp of the oven to 350F and bake for a further 35 to 40 minutes. the top should be slightly brown (some fruit/juice may carmelise on the top of the mixture-this isn't a major problem)

Add 2 tablespoons (you may require slightly more dependent on the width of your pan-do NOT over water) of cold water and simmer gently over a low heat until cooked through.
