I’m pretty sure anyone who has spent any amount of time with me knows that I have a weakness for desserts. While I try to love my fruit and veg, my sweet tooth always wins in the end. To me, this crumble is the best of both worlds – featuring lots of fresh fruit in the filling and a sweet, crunchy topping.
While I sort of made this up as I went along, I used this recipe from BBC Good Food as a guideline. The recipe called for baking the topping separately which definitely made it extra crunchy. Here’s what I ended up putting in mine:
110 g plain flour
30 g rolled oats
85g butter at room temperature
400g of fruit, chopped (I used rhubarb, apples and a handful of blueberries)
30g of soft light brown sugar
30g of butter
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
It was definitely a success as it was all demolished in one sitting (I didn’t eat it all myself, promise!).
