If you're on the west coast in August, this is what you will likely have for dessert.


  1. Peel apples and cut into bite size pieces.
  2. Mix with the blackberries and place in a buttered casserole dish.
  3. Mix together the white sugar, cinnamon and T. flour and spoon over top.
  4. Next, mix together the cup of brown sugar, flour and butter until it is coarse and place on top of the fruit.
  5. Bake in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

ok, but not a well-written or researched recipe. 1) no thickener was included (e.g. corn starch, tapioca powder, flour) so that the filling is much too liquidy, basically fruit and very runny juice 2) no casserole size or depth is indicated, so it's a guess 3) nothing is mentioned about whether the butter should be chilled or room temp 4) nothing is mentioned about the size of the apples or mnay cups there should be 5) there is no reference re: how to adjust the recipe if frozen blackberries are used 6) the cooking time is wrong: the correct time os more like 45-50 mins.

This tasted great. I'm not blaming the recipe but it was a soupy mess when I ate it; I skipped the apples and used extra blackberries. I also tried to eat it while it was still hot. I knew it would thicken as it cooled, but I couldn't wait!

WOW! This is my new "favorite" dessert. I used to live in Oregon, but never had blackberries and apples paired like this. I needed to use a little more flour to thicken the juice, but other than that, no problem. Quick to put together and terrific result! Thanks for posting! I know I'm fixing this for our Thanksgiving dinner.
