Ingredients

  • 100 g plain flour
  • 50 g of ground almonds (or 150g of plain flour if but free)
  • 125 g unsalted butter (chilled and cut into cubes)
  • 35 g Demerara sugar
  • 35 g Caster sugar (plus extra for the fruit as required)

Around 900g of fruit:

  • 2 stems of rhubarb cut in half lengthwise and then cut into 4cm batons.
  • 3 apples peeled and cored (I used MM green apples)
  • 350 g strawberries, hulled and halved

you'll also need

  • A shallow oven proof dish (or individual dishes as I’ve done here).

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200c/ Fan 180c. 
  2. Combine the flour, ground almonds (if using), and butter in a large bowl and rub together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles very coarse breadcrumbs with a few larger lumps. 
  3. Add the sugars and stir through.
  4. Sprinkle with half a teaspoon of cold water and rake through with a fork until you have a lumpy, crumbly mixture. Put the crumble mix in the freezer for 10 minutes, or in the fridge until you're ready to bake if you’re making ahead.
  5. Meanwhile lightly grease your ovenproof dish(es) and prepare the fruit.Arrange the fruit in the baking dish(es) and sprinkle it with caster sugar to taste, depending on how sharp you want your crumble (I used 2 tbsp sprinkled over for a medium sweetness). 
  6. Loosely top your fruit with the crumble mix (don't pat it down).
  7. Bake for about half an hour, until golden and bubbling, allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving with an accompaniment of your choice (vanilla ice cream for me!).
