Apple and Plum Crumble.

Serves 6-8, takes 25mins to Prepare and takes 40mins to Cook

For the filling
675g x Bramley Apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced
675g x Cox’s Apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced
12 x Plums, stones removed, quartered
25g x Light Muscovado sugar
1 tsp x Ground Cinnamon
2 tbsp x Water

For the crumble
280g x Self-Raising Flour
140g x Butter, plus extra for greasing
140g x Demerara Sugar
70g x Porridge Oats

Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4 and grease a 28 x 20 x 5cm baking dish with butter.

For the filling: put the apples and plums in the baking dish. Sprinkle over the sugar, cinnamon and water and toss together. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the fruits soften and their juices run. Remove the baking dish from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 200C/gas 6.

For the crumble: put the flour, butter and sugar in a food processor and blitz to combine. Remove the bowl from the processor and stir in the oats by hand as they need to remain coarse. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the fruit and bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with cream, ice cream or custard.
