“Fresh fruit isn’t the only way to make a crumble, in fact frozen fruit is a gamechanger – try it and see for yourself. ”

  • 1 kg mixed frozen berries and cherries
  • 100 g sugar , (I used a mixture of golden caster, soft brown and demerara)
  • ½ an orange
  • 50 g unsalted butter , (cold)
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 100 g flaked almonds
Step By Step Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6
  2. Tip the frozen berries into a saucepan with half the sugar and place on a medium heat.
  3. Squeeze in the juice of half an orange and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved and the fruit has softened. Remove from the heat and leave to cool a little.
