Featured Recipe | Crumble Topped Apple and Blackberry Loaf | Cooking With Kids

Over the summer the mini monsters have really got back into cooking, and we have had fun finding ways to adapt some of our favourite cooking with kids recipes.  Last year we made a cheese and apple loaf  and it went down a treat, we have made it a few times since. We had a collection of blackberries hanging around after the kids went foraging and I was going to make a standard crumble but then thought a nice apple and blackberry loaf topped with a crunchy crumble would go down a treat...

Crumble Topped Apple and Blackberry Loaf







You need:

Loaf:
Vegetable oil for  greasing
300g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
40g soft butter
1 and a half apples (cut into easy to manage slices for your little one to handle)
2 egg
up to 150ml apple juice
a few handfuls of blackberries

Topping:
1 rounded tbsp plain flour
25g butter
25g light muscovado sugar

Rub together the topping ingredients listed to make a crumble topping, put to the side for later on in the recipe.

now, lets get the loaf made...


Put the flour, baking powder and butter in a bowl and 'tickle' (ie rub in between fingers) until you get a fine crumbly mixture.

Cut up the apple into bite size pieces. Your little one may not be able to handle a knife sharp enough, if this is the case just 'snap' the apple with hands.

In a cup beat an egg and add it into the mixture, it is at this point you will need to add a bit of apple juice. GO SLOWLY with this step.

The mixture should end up like a cake mixture.

Fold in the blackberries.

Spoon into a loaf tin and sprinkle with the crumble topping you made earlier.



Bake in a preheated oven (180c/Gas mark 4) for about 40 minutes.

Leave to cool slightly then cut up and eat warm.
