Quick Summer Fruits Crumble

I am so ready for Summer to come round the corner, so I can put away my winter wardrobe, plant up up my garden and start carrying my sunglasses wherever I go. I want to eat strawberries, avocados and salad and sit in the garden on sun-loungers. Doesn't seem like much to ask, but summer is being quite contrary...

One of the other great things about summer is all the delicious fruit that comes into season- strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, apricots, blackcurrants, nectarines. I love it all! We're not quite in the season for those fruits yet in the UK, although some early British strawberries are knocking around. I use the BBC Good Food Season Table to keep an eye on when I'll be able to find the fruit I want.

In my determination to bring summer on, I decided to make a Quick Summer Fruit Crumble for dessert, using the fruit that I could find. I mixed raspberries, blackberries and blueberries together in the bottom of a ceramic dish and poured the crumble mixture over the top. No pre-cooking and no peeling required makes it a super-quick crumble to make!

There are some nice summer fruits available now, but from June, you should be able to buy British- even better.

(serves 4)

150g blueberries
150g raspberries
150g blackberries
140g plain flour
100g caster sugar
100g butter
70g oats


1. Tip all the fruit into the bottom of a ceramic dish.
2. Sprinkle a tablespoon of the caster sugar over the top.
3. Cut the butter into small chunks. 
4.Mix the flour, oats and sugar together in a bowl and rub the butter in until it looks like oaty breadcrumbs. 
5.Pour the crumble mix over the fruit and even out with a spoon.
6. Pop in the oven at 180 (170 fan, Gas mark 6) for 25 minutes, or until the crumble topping is golden brown. If it doesn't seem to be browning how you want, pop it under a hot grill for 4-5 mins at the end to crisp it up.
7. Enjoy with custard or ice cream.
