Apple and Blackberry Crumble Traybake

This was really yummy if extremely filling! I could only eat a small portion at a time. It was lovely heated and served with ice cram though!

Apple and Blackberry Crumble Traybake (from Sunday Brunch)
(Serves 6)

For the base
125g butter
100g caster sugar
150g plain flour
140g ground almonds

For the filling
125g butter
125g caster sugar
125g ground almonds
100g plain flour
Pinch of ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
Splash of vanilla essence
3 Bramley apples, peeled and cubed
200g blackberries
For the topping
50g demerara sugar

Preheat the oven to 160°C. To make the base,butter, sugar, flour and almonds with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs, then press into a greased and lined 20 x 30cm baking tray. Bake for 15 mins then allow to cool.

For the filling, rub together the butter, sugar and almonds to form a crumble. Remove a couple of tablespoonfuls for the topping.

Add 25g flour, the cinnamon, baking powder, eggs and vanilla to the remaining mix and stir to form a batter. Pour the batter over the cooked base and sprinkle with the apples and blackberries.

Add the demerara sugar and the remaining flour to the reserved crumble and spread over the top of the fruit

Bake for 25 mins until the batter is set and the crumble topping is crisp and golden.

Cool the traybake a little, then slice and serve with ice cream.
