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


Crumble topping:


  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC (350oF), Gas Mark 4. 
  2. Mix the cornflour and orange juice together in the base of a medium saucepan. 
  3. 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. 
  4. Spoon into 4 x 250ml (8fl oz) individual ovenproof dishes.
  5. 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. 
  6. Stir in the marzipan and orange rind.
  7. 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. 
  8. Serve with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
