I ate several types of crumble, but my mom’s one is the best of all and I want to share it with you. And I am sure you want to make it again and again….

Ingredients: Filling 

  • 2 apples
  • 5 big plums
  • 2 tablespoons of golden caster sugar
  • 1 pinch of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and gloves)
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon….I forgot it on the pic…:-)


  • 150 g of flour
  • 100 g of cold butter
  • 50 g of golden caster sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt

Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of a square pan with butter.

Slice apples and plums. In a medium bowl mix them together with the sugar, the spices, the lemon juice and zest. 

Put the fruitmix in your buttered pan. 

In another bowl mix together the flour, sugar, salt and the cold butter and work them with your fingers until pea sized lumbes are formed. 


Top the fruit mixture with the crumbles. 

Put into the oven and bake until golden brown and the fruit bubbly. It takes about 45 minutes. 

Serve warm or at room temperature with cream, vanilla ice or clutted cream. 

I like to eat the crumble in the morning in my jogurt….!!!
