It's week four on bake off which means it's time for desserts! As I didn't have a huge amount of free time this week I went for a simple and easy crumble recipe, the perfect thing for the chillier evenings creeping it. As blackberries are currently in season and see to be everywhere at the moment, they were swiftly added into the recipe.

On your marks...get set...BAKE!

- 75g butter
- 100g sugar (we used a mixure of golden brown, muscavado and caster sugar)
- 3/4 bramley apples
- Around 200g blackberries (save some for a garnish)
- 150g gluten free flour (you can really use any flour)

Preheat the over to gas mark 4. Peel, core and chop the apple into around 2cm chunks and place them in a  saucepan. Add 2tbsp of water and half the sugar to the apples. Place on a medium heat and cook until the apples become just mushy. For the crumble mix, place the remaining sugar with the flour and add the butter. Mix until it looks like large bread crumbs. Add the apple mix to an oven proof dish, add the blackberries and then top with the crumble mixture. Cook for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden brown and you can see the fruit bubbling. Serve straightaway with ice cream of custard.

And there we go, it really is that simple! Let me know what you think of this week's recipe and if you're baking along make sure to leave me a link below or tweet me @afloralcrown! For all things Great Blogger Bake Off related check out:
