This Blackberry and Apple Streusel is quite simply glorious.Sweetened bread with an incredible fruited and crumble top. Perfect for breakfast or an afternoon treat with tea or coffee. A slab of this will cure all ills.
Put the flour in a bowl with the yeast, salt, cinnamon and sugar. I use an electric mixer with dough hook out of pure laziness, but feel free to do it all by hand.
Whisk all the liquid ingredients together and add to the flour, along with the butter, and mix well. You may have to add more milk if the mixture is too dry and rubbly. Keep mixing until it works in and becomes smooth and elastic. About five mins in the mixer, ten by hand. Fabulous stuff.
Preheat your oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4
Make the crumble mix. I whizz the butter, sugar, flour and cinnamon in the food processor until rubbly but you can rub it all together by hand you mad fools.
Bake in the oven for 35 mins or so. I suggest you keep a close eye on it for several well founded reasons. Number one is to turn the heat down if it starts catching too early, number two is to be witness to the amazing sight of it gloriously baking, burnished and gold with it's fruity crown rising above the tin and thirdly it is to get a whiff of it's incredible smell. It kept me off facebook for at least 30 minutes.
