Are you looking for an easy fall dessert? Then you came to the right place. Apple and blackberry crumble is so ‘fall-like’, from the seasonal fruit to the spices and it’s all topped off with vanilla ice cream and homemade apple spiced caramel sauce. Are you drooling yet?
Every time I’m at the Farmers market or grocery store and I see the beautiful shiny blackberries I buy them and they get eaten, I never have a chance to cook with them. They remind me of growing up in England when we would be out in the countryside my dad would stop the car and we would pick wild blackberries from the side of the road.
Fall is in the air, well it is my kitchen and will be in yours when you make this recipe. When I’m developing a recipe, I usually have a written game plan, but in this case I just bought the fruit and I had most of the other ingredients in the pantry. It just came together and as it came together, it came together very well.
As I mentioned, this dessert is drizzled with an apple spiced caramel sauce that I made last week and is a perfect sweet finishing touch to this dish.
If you’re wondering what apples to choose, pink lady, granny smith, fuji, gala, honey crisp (when in season) are all great baking apples. We are in apple season so there should be a nice variety to pick from.
