This crumble has white sugar on it, but I prefer brown.
1 lb plums, stoned and quartered
1 lb apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced
4 - 6 oz light brown sugar
6 oz plain flour
2 oz porridge oats
3 oz butter cut into small pieces
3 - 4 oz soft brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Place the fruit into a large oven-proof dish.
Sprinkle sugar over the fruit and mix lightly.
Ensure that the top of the fruit lies as flat as you can make it.
Heat oven to 180 degrees C.
Put flour in a large bowl.
Add butter and rub it into the flour until it is crumbly.
Add porridge oats and sugar and mix lightly.
If you wish, you can also add some chopped walnuts.
Sprinkle topping over fruit, carefully covering it and going right up to the edges.
Do not press it down. You will see that my filling leaked and rose up over the crumble.
This is not ideal.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the top is brown. Sprinkle a little more sugar over the top if desired.
Hot and cold - a good combination
