Apple and plum crumble is such a delicious dessert, perfect comfort food this time of year.
Making a crumble is SO much easier than making a pie as pastry can be so fiddly, but crumble is so easy my 5 year old daughter Ava made it all on her own!
I first posted this back in 2012 and decided to give it another go over the weekend for Orthodox Easter – YUM!
As far as desserts go, it’s definitely on the healthier side too – having much less sugar and butter than most desserts.
This recipe will fill your home with it’s heavenly, fruity, cinnamony smell and is sure to be a big hit with family and friends – you can even make it ahead of time and warm, smile and serve for dessert!
All you have to do is decide whether to enjoy it with cream or custard.
6 – 8 cooking apples (depending on the size)
6 – 8 plums
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1 teaspoon cinnamon
90g chopped softened butter
1) Peel and chop apples and plums (I left the skin on the plums)
2) Heat a fry pan on low and gently soften the fruit
3) Add the sugar, cinnamon and lemon zest and stir through
4) Once the fruit has cooked, place into a baking dish
1) Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl
2) Rub butter through dry ingredients with fingertips until it feels like rough breadcrumbs
3) Place the crumble mixture on top of the fruit and bake in a 180 degree oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown.
