Mulberry Crumble Pie, Competition & Easter Special

 I have to say I adore Autumn it has taken me many years to say that because i always think once autumn has arrived so has winter but it isn't the case. Like my husband says - "it's spring in reverse". The crisp mornings, bright blue cloudless skies, gorgeous autumn coloured leaves and the chance to pull out some favourite "feel good" recipes in preparation for winter. Who wouldn't love Autumn?

This Mulberry Crumble Pie is one of those recipes that just fit the bill for a autumn dessert. I just so happened to have some stewed mulberries lying around in my freezer and I came up with this delicious dessert. It warm and cosy yet still a hint of spring in there with the mulberries. The crumble adds a bit more texture to the pie and I think this combines my two loves crumble toppings and crispy pie crusts! Yum. 

If you don't have stewed mulberries lying around in your freezer like I did you could use tinned pie apples with frozen mixed berries sprinkled over the top of the apple. Make sure you add this to your  recipe list of dessert to try this season.


2 Cups Stewed Mulberry Mixture
(Or 4oog Tin Pie Apples & ½ Cup Frozen Mixed Berries)
Packaged Short crust Pastry Sheets

Crumble Topping:
90g  Butter
½ Cup SR Flour
½ Cups Rolled Oats
½ Tsp Cinnamon
¼ Tsp Ginger
¼ Cup Brown Sugar
1/3  Cup Shredded Coconut


1.    In a bowl rub together the butter, flour, oats and sugar together until it resembles fine bread crumbs. Add coconut and mix through. Set aside.
2.    Line a tart tin with short crust pastry and prick base with fork. Place in a 180 Degree oven for 15 min until lightly brown.
3.    Remove and place mulberry mixture into the tart base. Sprinkle crumble topping over the mulberry mixture and decorate with strips of shortcrust pastry.
4.    Brush top of strips with a little milk and sprinkle with raw sugar.
5.    Bake in a 180 Degree oven for 20 min or until pastry is golden brown.
6.    Serve with a dollop of cream, ice cream or custard.
