Plum and Apple Crumble

A crumble is always a british family crown pleaser. Something to follow a Sunday Lunch when everyone is sat around chatting and drinking.

This crumble is the perfect balance of sweet and tart.

Serves 2

Preparation Time - 10 Minutes

Cooking Time - 20 Minutes


3 Plums

1 Apple

4tbs Brown Sugar

1 Orange (Zest and 1/2 Juice)

3tbs Plain Flour

2tbs Caster Sugar

20g Butter

Hazelnut Granola (Optional - Recipe on Blog)


- Start by prepping the fruit. Chop the plums and peel and chop the apples into small bitesized pieces.

- Add them to a sauce pan with the sugar and orange zest and juice.

- Cook over a low/medium heat until the fruit softens.

- Whilst that simmers, prepare your topping by adding the butter, sugar and flour into a bowl. Rub it together with your fingers until it resembles a crumble. You can add the granola at this point.

- Preheat the oven to 180c/350f.

- Add the fruit to an oven proof dish and top with the crumble. Then bake for 20 minutes.

- Top with ice-cream or custard and ENJOY!
