Start by preheating the oven to 180C and make sure to peel, core and slice or dice the apples.

Dice the butter and mix it through your fingers with the flour, creating a breadcrumb texture before adding the sugar and mixing it together.

Add the apples and blackberries to a large enough baking dish and dust with some sugar.

Next, sprinkle the crumble topping over the fruit and bake in the oven for around 45 minutes, or until golden brown.

To make the homemade custard, put equal quantities of milk and double cream in a pan with one vanilla pod and its seeds.

Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar before pouring the milk mixture over the yolk mix and stirring it together.

Transfer this to the pan, continuously whisking until the mixture thickens. Serve the crumble with the fresh warm custard immediately.
