With the beautiful red berries and its perfect couples sized portion, my red berry crumble is a great way to
treat your dearly beloved to a yummy pudding. It's also super easy to make so anyone can magic up this romantic gesture with the greatest of ease.

Don't feel like you have to stick with the Valentines-esq red theme though. This pudding is great for using up the remains of any berries you have left at the end of the week so if you have other berries such as blackberries or blueberries why not chuck them in too.

Its so simple! Give it a go and you'll defiantly be in the good books tonight!

Red Berry Crumble

150g Red Berries
75g Golden Caster Sugar
100g Plain Flour
50g Butter (Cut Into Cubes)
50g Light Brown Sugar

  1. Get that oven all warmed up to200 degrees (180 fan).
  2. Place the berries and caster sugar into a sauce pan and stir together on a low heat until all the sugar has dissolved into the juice that should come from the berries. Don't be too vigorous with the stirring and the heat as you don't want the berries to break up completely so the crumble filling has a nice texture. 
  3. Once done pour into nice two people sized dish (see picture at the top).
  4. Place the flour and butter into a bowl and rub the butter into the flour like you would if you were making a shortcrust pastry until you have a breadcrumb like mixture.
  5. Stir in the light brown sugar and then sprinkle on top of the berry mix.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until the topping has turned golden brown.
See how all the fruit juices have oozed and bubbled out onto the top - now that is a sight that I love!

For an extra layer of flavor try adding some spices to the crumble topping. A tbsp of cinnamon or all spice for example, whichever spices you prefer but make sure you choose something that complements the berries you are using.

The crumble lords decree that it must be served with piping hot custard. This is the law and has to be obeyed! 

 Light some candles, pour the wine and tuck in!
