This is a super simple recipe that I would say anyone can make and what makes it great are that there are so many variations. For example, what kind of fruit you use, adding nuts, oats or anything you feel like really! The basic recipe involves rubbing together around 200g of plain flour with 100g of butter using your fingertips lightly. Once this becomes a crumb like texture, add sugar. Ok. I know this sounds simple, but my mum always does this to taste, so this can be several spoonfuls of caster sugar depending on how sweet you like the flavour of the crumble to be. For this recipe, we like to add a handful of crushed amaretti biscuits, which go perfectly with our plum filling. We also have a batch of stewed Victoria Plums in the freezer, leftover from summer. But stewing plums, apples, cherries etc is pretty easy and just involves heating a bit of sugar and water (or lemon juice depending on how sour your fruit it). Recipes can be found all over the internet, so don't be lazy go find one. Grease an oven dish, depending on how many you're catering for and pour in the fruit mixture. Layer on top your amaretti crumble mix and bake in the oven for around 40mins on 180c. I would add custard to the final serving, but that's me being greedy. This makes just enough for my family, so double up if you're got more to cook for. This is one of the easiest recipes to make and can be don tasting deliciously with so very few ingredients, perfect for student suppers or comfort eating!
