Plum and Apple Crumble
For the fruit filling
For the crumble topping
Self raising flour
Cold unsalted butter
Light brown sugar
Ground cinnamon and nutmeg
Demerara sugar for a little crunch!
Preheat the oven to 180° (350°F). Rinse the plums well and slice in half. Cut the flesh into small cubes and discard the stones.
Chop the apples into small pieces and add them and the plums into a medium baking dish. Sprinkle with the sugar and dot with the butter.
Place all the crumble ingredients in a bowl. Use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour and sugar until you have a crumbly sandy texture that forms clumps when pinched together.
Cover the fruit with the crumble topping and sprinkle with Demerara sugar. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling through the crumble and the topping is crunchy and golden.
Leave the crumble to cool down slightly before serving with vanilla ice cream, custard or cream.
