Mary Berry’s mini apple, apricot and hazelnut crumbles

Mary Berry's mini crumbles

These individual crumbles are scrumptious and so easy to make. You could equally make one large crumble – use a 1.2 litre ovenproof dish for six or a 2.4 litre dish for 12, and bake for 30 minutes (45 minutes for 12). Serve with cream, crème fraîche, or warm custard.

  • 1.8kg Bramley apples, peeled and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 350g ready-to-eat dried apricots, snipped into small pieces
  • 200ml apple juice
  • 200g Demerara sugar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 100g cold butter, cubed
  • 50g hazelnuts, chopped


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Put the apples, apricots, apple juice, and all but 1 heaped tablespoon (3 level tablespoons for 12) of the demerara sugar into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, cover with a lid, and simmer for 5–7 minutes or until the apples are just soft. Remove from the heat and divide among the ramekins.

Put the flour and butter into a mixing bowl. Using the tips of your fingers, rub the cold butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the remaining sugar and the hazelnuts and mix together.

Sprinkle the crumble topping over the apples in the ramekins, then place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until the crumble is light golden brown and the fruit is bubbling around the edges.
