To keep things simple, I only added a little sugar and some cornflour to the raspberries. The cornflour serves to thicken the juices into a syrup as the crumble bakes, while the sugar helps reduce the raspberries’ tartness. Of course, if you like things a little sweeter some more sugar is fine.

For the crumble topping, simplicity is key. It only requires flour, butter, brown sugar, and salt. You can use caster or granulated sugar instead of brown sugar, if you prefer. The method is also easy: rub the butter into the flour and then mix in the sugar and salt.

In a 9-inch/23cm pie dish, spread out the raspberries and sprinkle the sugar and cornflour over them. Add the crumble, ensuring it covers the raspberries fairly evenly. Squeezing the crumble mix while covering the raspberries creates small crumbly lumps. Bake the crumble for 40 to 45 minutes until the top turns golden brown. Allow it to cool for a while before serving as the raspberries will be piping hot.

As you can see, everything is straightforward. . The result is a delicious crumble with raspberries retaining their sharpness and a slightly sweetened syrup. The crumble offers just the right amount of sweetness and a fantastic texture. The best way to enjoy the crumble is warm, served with custard, cream, or ice-cream. My personal preference is for custard as an accompaniment.
