    • 2 cooking apples
    • 60g (2oz) golden caster sugar
    • 200g (7oz) blueberries
    • 2 tbsp crème de cassis or water
    • For the crumble topping:
    • 60g (2oz) gluten-free brown bread (we used Genius)
    • 60g (2oz) cornmeal or polenta
    • 60g (2oz) butter, cubed
    • 60g (2oz) gluten-free jumbo oats (such as Nairns)
    • 60g (2oz) golden caster sugar


    • Set the oven to 190°C/Gas Mark 5.

    • To make the crumble topping: Put the bread into a processor and whizz to make crumbs. Add the cornmeal, or polenta, and butter and whizz until just combined. Tip into a bowl, and stir in oats and sugar.

    • Peel, core, quarter and slice the apples and put into the dish. Add the sugar, blueberries and crème de cassis, or water.

    • Sprinkle the apple crumble topping over the fruit. Bake for 30 mins until golden. Serve warm or cold.

    Top tips for making apple and blueberry crumble:

    If you have coeliac disease, oats are best avoided as, although pure oats do not contain gluten, they may be contaminated with gluten during processing. If you’re not coeliac but still don’t tolerate gluten, eating oats should be perfectly fine.
