With the sun beginning to show its face again, prepare for the arrival of summer days with this berry nice strawberry and raspberry crumble.

The recipe is courtesy of chef Chris Baber’s debut cookbook Easy. It’s full of quick, simple and mouth-watering recipes that are gloriously stress-free.

“This crumble is a perfect summer dessert,” says Chris. “The recipe comes from one of my best mates and is something we always have round his house after dinner.

“I love the sweet, cakey layer the ground almonds give between the fruit and crumble. Serve it warm with a good dollop of clotted cream.”

Chris’s summer strawberry and raspberry crumble.

Ingredients

  • 300g strawberries
  • 300g raspberries

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180 Fan/400F/Gas Mark 6.

  3. Scatter over one tablespoon of the sugar, then scatter over the ground almonds.

  5. Scatter the mixture evenly over the fruit. Bake for 30-35 minutes until lightly golden.
  6. Serve with clotted cream.
