Plum and Apple Crumble (V)

This was another recipe that I did with the plums. I wanted to do a pudding and realised I haven't made a crumble in ages. I altered my apple crumble recipe (before I created the blog). Made the crumble crunchier by adding almonds. So if you have nut allergies, don't add the almonds

Serves 4-6

250g Plain Flour
100g Demerera Sugar
150g Unsalted Butter, cubed and at room temperature
50g Ground Almonds

400g Cooking Apples, Peeled, Cored and
cut into wedges
400g Plums, Destoned and cut into halves
3 tbsp Caster Sugar
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
1tsp Cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 200c/180c Fan assisted. In a pan add the lemon juice, apples and plums and stew for about 10 minutes or until the apples are mushy. Add the sugar and cinnamon and stir in. Put the fruit filling at the bottom of an oven proof dish

2. For the crumble, get out a mixing bowl and add the sugar and butter and mix with a wooden spoon until smooth. Add the flour and stir for a bit. Then rub the butter/sugar mixture with the flour to create small crumbs. Do this by putting the mixture between the fingers and rubbing between the palms of your hands.

3.  Tip the mixture over the fruit filling and spread equally. Bake in the oven for about 30-35 minutes until golden brown on the top. Leave to stand for about 20 minutes. Serve with ice cream, cream or custard.
