Strawberry And Blueberry Crumble...


A Christmassy twist on a favourite pud.

It doesn’t seem to matter what size your Christmas cake is, there is always a little bit of marzipan left that you don’t know what to do with.

Don’t throw it away, just 75g (3oz) adds festive flavour to a simple crumble, delicious spooned over fresh fruity strawberries and blueberries.



Serves 4

Prep: 15 minutes

Cook: 20-25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon cornflour
  • Juice of 1 medium orange
  • 450g (1lb) strawberries, hulled, halved or quartered depending on size
  • 200g (7oz) blueberries
  • 40g (11/2oz) caster sugar


Crumble topping

  • 100g (4oz) plain flour
  • 40g (11/2oz) caster sugar
  • 50g (2oz) butter, diced
  • 75g (3oz) marzipan, coarsely grated
  • Finely grated rind ½ orange
  • Vanilla ice cream to serve


Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180oC (350oF), Gas Mark 4. 
  • Mix the cornflour and orange juice together in the base of a medium saucepan. 
  • Add the strawberries, blueberries and sugar to the pan then cook over a medium to low heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring until the berries begin to soften slightly. 
  • Spoon into 4 x 250ml (8fl oz) individual ovenproof dishes.
  • To make the crumble add the flour, sugar and butter to a mixing bowl and rub in the butter with fingertips or an electric mixer until fine crumbs. 
  • Stir in the marzipan and orange rind.
  • Spoon the crumble over the fruit and bake for 20-25 minutes until the crumble is golden brown and the juices are bubbling around the edges. 
  • Serve with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
