Jo's warming dessert is delicious at any time of the year. Serve it with ice-cream, cream or creamy custard. Yum!


  • 350g / 12 oz frozen mixed berries, defrosted

  • 1 ball of stem ginger (from a jar), finely chopped

  • grated zest of 1 orange

  • 4 tbsp caster sugar

  • For the topping

  • 50g / 2 oz unsalted butter, softened

  • 75g / 2 ½ oz plain flour

  • a pinch of sea salt

  • 40g/ 1 ½ oz demerara sugar, plus extra for sprinkling

  • 20g/ 1 oz rolled oats

  • 20g/ 1 oz flaked almonds, crushed lightly in your hands


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180ºC/fan 160ºC/gas 4.

  • 2.

    Place the berries in a sieve over a bowl to drain away any excess juices.

  • 3.

    To make the topping, lightly rub together the butter, flour and salt, and then stir in the sugar, oats and flaked almonds. Try not to over handle the mixture; it wants to be fairly chunky and crumbly.

  • 4.

    Now back to the filling. Mix the drained fruits with the ginger, orange zest and sugar.

  • 5.

    Spoon the filling into two individual ovenproof dishes (or one larger dish to share) and pile the crumble mixture on top. Scatter over a little more demerara sugar and sit the dishes on a baking tray.

  • 6.

    Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the topping is crisp and golden and the fruity juices are just starting to ooze out of the dishes.

  • 7.

    Serve just as they are or with your favourite creamy comfort (mine is custard, but thick cream, ice cream or crème fraîche are all good).
