Easy and delicious Autumn recipe: blackberry and apple crumble cake

It’s blackberry season and my friend SuperMum has shared her fantastic recipe for blackberry and apple crumble cake!
Totally yummy and (probably) at least one of your five-a-day…

How delicious does this look?  My clever clever friend, came up with this recipe herself after picking blackberries with her little ones and very kindly agreed to share it with us (thank you SuperMum)!
