Cranberry Blackberry Crumble

I was supposed to post this crumble two days back for the 'Sweet Punch' baking series, and here I am late again. Better late than never right? I had a hell lot of cranberries lying in my fridge waiting to be used in some dish. I also had some blackberries with which I usually make smoothies lying my freezer. I also used chocolate chips and walnuts in the topping. The original recipe actually called for pear, chocolate and walnuts, but I modified the ingredients and used cranberry, blackberry and walnuts. They made a delightful crumble. I never knew it was so so easy to make crumbles. They taste great with some vanilla bean ice cream!

Ingredients (makes crumble in 4 ramekins)

Cranberries - 1/2 cup
Blackberries - 1/2 cup
Light brown soft sugar - 3 tablespoons
Lemon juice - 2 spoons
Lemon zest - 1/2 teaspoon

For the crumble
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Light brown soft sugar - 1/2 cup
Butter at room temperature - 1/2 cup
Walnuts(toasted) - 1/2 cup chopped roughly

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease 4 ovenproof teacups or ramekins.  In a medium bowl, mix together the cranberries,blackberries, brown sugar, lemon zest and juice. Divide the mixture between the teacups or ramekins, spooning over any juice.

To make the crumble, place the flour and butter in a medium bowl and, with your fingertips, rub together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, walnuts and chocolate.

Spoon the crumble over the pears and press down lightly. Place the crumbles on a baking tray and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and bubbling. Serve with a scoop of good vanilla ice-cream.

It is that simple! Thanks for choosing this recipe Divya. We really enjoyed it.
