Apple, Berry, Citrus Crumble

The lighting in this photo doesn't do this dessert justice. It was really good--a nice mixture of tart and sweet!

Adapted from Vegetarian: Over 300 healthy and wholesome recipes chosen from around the world.


  • 1 pound cooking apples (I used Cortland)
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh mixed berries (I used a frozen bag of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries)
  • grated zest and juice of one orange
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • vanilla ice cream, to serve

For the topping

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 5 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts, chopped finely
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamon


>>Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

1) Grease a 9×9″ pan.

2) Peel and slice the apples, placing them evenly in the pan.

3) Scatter the berries evenly over the top of the apples.

4) Sprinkle the orange zest and brown sugar evenly over the top of the fruit.

5) Pour the orange juice over the top.

6) Begin making the topping. Put the flour in a bowl and rub the butter in until the mixture is crumbly and there aren’t large chunks of butter.

7) Stir in the sugar, hazelnuts, and cardamon.

8) Sprinkle the topping evenly over the top of the fruit. Press the topping down, especially at the edges to trap in the juices.

9) Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is golden.

10) Serve warm, with ice cream.
