225g raspberries

3 tablespoons cassis

115g caster sugar

  • Wash the blueberries and blackcurrants, stripping the latter from their stalks, pat dry on kitchen paper.
  • Mix both fruits into the strawberries along with the raspberries and sugar. Sprinkle over the cassis and set aside.
  • Place the flour and hazelnuts in a food processor. Whiz until the nuts form fine crumbs, then add the diced butter.
  • Briefly process until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add the sugar and stir in.
  • Cover the fruit with the crumble mixture. Place in the centre of the oven and bake for 10 minutes before reducing the temperature to 190C, Gas mark 5. Bake for a further 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Serve hot or cold with lots of cream.
