Wild Fruit Crumble

A warming, simple and delicious dessert. And a perfect opportunity to get out on a nice crisp walk and pick up some of natures free food to cook up and enjoy on these beautiful autumn days.

  • 300g Fruit of your choice (if you don’t have scales then enough to cover the bottom on whatever dish you are using!)
  • 300g or 1 cup Plain flour
  • 200g or 2/3 cup Butter (or a vegan spread)
  • 3tbsp Sugar (plus a little extra to mix in with the fruit)
  • 150g or 1/2 cup Oats
  • 1/2tsp Mixed spice or cinnamon
  • Vegan custard or ice cream to serve


  1. Forage (or shop) for some seasonal fruits. We’ve chosen elderberries, blackberries and apples that we have handpicked locally.
  2. Clean, cut and cook the fruits. Cook them lightly on the hob with a spoonful of sugar or two (depending how sweet you like it).
  3. Mix the flour and butter together in a bowl, crumbling between your fingers, until it reaches a breadcrumb consistency. (Add more flour if it looks to wet and butter if it’s too dry).
  4. Add sugar, oats and spice and mix.
  5. Spread the fruit evenly into an oven dish. If you’re parked awkwardly somewhere in a van this can be tricky, so it might be worth getting the spirit level out!
  6. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the top. We like to top ours off with a little extra sugar and oats.
  7. Cook in the oven for around 25 minutes, or in our little oven it was more like 40 minutes! Basically, until the topping starts to harden and go golden brown.
  8. Serve up and enjoy!!
