I love this type of cake, originally from United Kingdom. It was created during the Second World War due to rationing. The ingredients needed to make pies required too much flour, butter and sugar, so, they invented “crumble” pie and I love it! Most of the time, this recipe made with apples, but I like adding some red fruits as well!
Red fruits and apple crumble
For 4 people
Prep time: 15 minutes.
Cooking time: 35 minutes
- 400 g frozen or fresh mixed red fruits

For the crumble dough:
- 30 g almond powder
- 50 g brown sugar
- 60 g butter
- 75 g flour
- 1 pinch of salt
- Peel the apples and cut them into pieces. Melt 30 g of butter in a frying pan and caramelise the apples with the sugar for about 10 minutes, they should be melting.
- With your fingertips, mix the flour, almond powder, 60 g diced butter, 50 g sugar and salt. Give the consistency of large sand by rubbing in your hands. Put in the fridge.
- Divide the apples into 4 small cocottes (or a large dish), add the red fruits without defrosting them. Mix a little. Cover with crumbled pastry while crumbling it.
- To finish, put in the oven at 180°C for about 35 minutes, the top should be lightly browned.
