This Apple Blackberry Crumble is a simple, yet delicious dessert that accentuates the seasonal fruit best. Spiced with cinnamon and lemon, and with a crunchy topping, the jammy fruit filling is one of my favorite comfort food.

Sift and combine the flour, salt, and sugar into a small bowl. Gradually add the melted butter while stirring with a fork, until the mixture starts clumping together. Add the rolled oats, stir to combine, and set aside until needed.
to make the apple blackberry filling
Start with peeling and dicing the apples. Place the apples in a large bowl and add the lemon zest, juice and blackberries.
In a small bowl, combine together the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and cardamom with a fork until every granule is evenly coated.
Add the sugar mixture to the fruit and gently stir everything with a spoon until completely incorporated.
Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F) or 175°C (350°F) if you're using a fan-assisted oven.
Add the prepared fruit filling to a baking dish lightly greased with butter. Make sure to use all the fruit and tuck it in densely. Pour over all the juices from the bowl.
Sprinkle the top with prepared streusel.
Bake on a middle oven rack for about 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden and the bubbles from the fruit are peeking through the crumble.
When done, remove the crumble from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving with some ice cream or freshly whipped cream.
You can use frozen blackberries instead of fresh ones.
