The addition of almonds is a great twist on this classic.

Share recipe


  • 125g unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • 125g plain flour
  • 125g ground almonds
  • 40g soft brown sugar
  • 100g amaretti biscuits, crumbled up
  • 5 bramley apples, peeled, cored & chopped into large chunks (for the filling)
  • 5 pears, ripe, peeled, cored & chopped into large chunks (for the filling)
  • 450g blackberries, for the filling
  • 1 lemon, zested & juiced (for the filling)
  • 50g soft brown sugar, for the filling
  • 1 tub vanilla ice cream or custard, to serve


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan/gas 5. First make the crumble topping by gently rubbing the butter, flour and ground almonds together in a large mixing bowl until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir through the sugar and amaretti biscuits then set aside.

Step 2

Place all the filling ingredients together in an ovenproof baking dish roughly 28cm by 21cm and mix together well.

Step 3

Cook the fruit in the oven without the crumble topping for 15 mins to soften, then remove and scatterer over the crumble mix.

Step 4

Return to the oven for a further 30 mins.

Step 5

Remove and set aside for 5 mins before serving. This dessert is great with vanilla ice cream or thick fresh custard.

Step 6

Cook’s tip: This will freeze easily and you can also make individual portions. Try swapping the fruits – apricots and peaches work really well with the amaretti.
