HERE ARE A COUPLE MORE IDEAS YOU MIGHT WANT TO TRY INSTEAD OF YOUR STANDARD APPLE CRUMBLE
Rhubarb about 400 grams
125 grams sugar
50g porridge oats 50 grams
50ml orange juice
75 grams butter
100 grams plain flour
Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/gas 5.
Cut ends off the Rhubarb and slice into small pieces. Place into an ovenproof dish. Dribble on the orange juice and sprinkle on the 75g of sugar. Cook this in the pre heated oven for about 20 minutes.
Put the porridge oats and the flour and in a large bowl. Cube your butter and put these in to the mix only using a few cubes at a time – keep kneading together until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
Once you have what looks like breadcrumbs stir in the last of the sugar and then spoon these onto the rhubarb. Place this back into the oven and cook for another 25 minutes. When the top is a nice brown colour you are finished. Now you just have to decide what you’re going to have with it!
Pear and Raspberry Crumble
600 grams of Raspberries
3 Pears (ripe)
100 grams of caster sugar
1 orange (use this to get the grated zest and the orange juice)
200 grams of butter
200 grams of flour
50 grams of muesli
25 grams of porridge oats
140 grams of brown sugar
Crumble – add the flour, diced butter, brown sugar, muesli and porridge into a large bowl. Knead all this together until it looks like breadcrumbs.
Grate the orange.
Pear and Raspberry - put the raspberries into a large ovenproof dish along with the sugar, orange zest and juice. Peel the pears and cut into small chunks and pop them into the mix too.
Place your crumble mix over your fruit mix and bake in your oven for about 40 minutes. The topping should look golden brown and the fruit should be bubbling.
Done – now add ice cream!
