Sometimes you just need something fruity and warming, especially with the colder evenings drawing in, and what could be better than an oaty plum crumble? Here is my favourite pudding recipe. You can use any fruit of course underneath the crumble, even tinned.
What you need:
- Fruit (in this case plums)
- 150g Plain Flour
- 100g Sugar - granulated, caster, soft brown - whatever you have
- 75g of butter / cooking fat / cooking margarine
- 50g Porridge Oats
What you do:
Cut the plums in half and wiggle out the stone. (for other fruit, prepare in the manner it needs to be prepared) Lay them in an ovenproof dish.
In a bowl rub the cold butter into the flour with your fingers until it resembles a rough breadcrumb.
Stir in the sugar and the porridge oats.
Pour the crumble mix onto the fruit and press down lightly.
Bake at Gas 6 for about 30 minutes, then scoff it all up with ice-cream, cream or custard - or all three!
