1 large cooking apple and 4 eating apples, peeled and sliced
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1⁄4 tsp ground cloves
25ml maple syrup (optional)
150g wholemeal flour (wheat or spelt)
75g butter, diced
25g hazelnuts, lightly crushed
25ml maple syrup
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4.
2. Put the apples and blackberries in a 1-litre ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over the cinnamon and cloves and mix thoroughly, then drizzle over the maple syrup, if using.
3. To make the topping, put the our in a bowl with a pinch of salt. Add the butter and rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture is the texture of breadcrumbs. Stir in the oats and hazelnuts, then drizzle in the maple syrup. Mix again.
4. Spoon the crumble topping over the fruit. Bake the crumble in the preheated oven for 25–30 minutes until the topping is brown and the fruit is piping hot and bubbling up from underneath.
