Here’s the recipe for the best blackberry pie. I decided to make this since we have a blackberry bush in the garden which my husband hates coz it is quite very invasive. Last year, I asked him not to cut it down coz I really wanted to have some blackberries so I can make my pie. And now, after we came from vacation, i saw how much these blackberries have ripen and loads of them. and most of all, they have no worms! So now that I harvest them, my husband got a go to cut the bushes down. It will come again next year:)
Blackberry is anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidants. It has loads of polyphenols such as ellagitannins and gallic acid and flavonoids such as quercitin, anthocyanins mainly cyanidinglycosides. It is also rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E and Manganese that serves as cofactor for several enzymes involved in bone formation. In short, it is good for your bones.
Now let’s bake:) This pie is just so easy that you can make it in just an hour.
Here’s the list of ingredients:
For blackberry filling:
- 400 g blackberry
- 1 vanilla bean
- 80 g sugar
For the doudh crumble
- 130 g butter (cold)
- 120 g flour
- 70 g almonds (crushed)
- 70 g oatmeal
- 80 g sugar
How to bake a blackberry pie
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Rinse the blackberries and dry them carefully with a clean dishcloth. Split the vanilla bean and scrape the seeds out. Use a little of the sugar to separate the seeds.
Mix the rest of the sugar with the vanilla and toss the blackberries in it. Place everything in a baking dish (I used a round 26 inches in diameter baking dish).
Crumble the cold butter into the flour. There should be some larger clumps in the dough, it will only make it better. Chop the almonds coarsely and mix them into the dough with the oats and sugar.
Spread the crumble dough over the blackberries and bake the blackberry tart for about 35-40 minutes, until the top is golden brown and crispy.
The blackberry pie tastes extra good if it is served with a some whipped cream, sour cream or vanilla ice cream.
Tip: If you have a food processor, you can very easily make the crumble dough in it. Just add the butter, flour and almonds, pulse a few times until the dough has the right consistency, and mix with the oats and sugar at the end.
ENJOY and let me know how it goes or don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
