Cooks Academy Fruit Crumble

In Ireland we love celebrating Irish Food for St Patrick's Day. Here's a quick and easy, nutritious and totally delicious Irish family dessert. The best thing is you can use any fruit instead of plums (eg. apples, peeled and cored; rhubarb or mixed berries). Cooking apples should be softened with a dash water and 1 tsp sugar first)

Ingredients: Cooks Academy Fruit Crumble

  • 100g plain flour
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 125g chilled, unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 35g brown sugar
  • 35g caster sugar, plus extra for the fruit as required
  • 900g fresh Plums, stoned (or other fruit)
  • 100g Porridge oats
  • 50g chopped nuts (optional)

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C.
  2. Combine the flour, ground almonds (if using), and butter in a food processor or large bowl, and pulse briefly, or rub with your fingertips, until the mixture resembles very coarse breadcrumbs with a few larger lumps. Add the sugars and stir through.
  3. Sprinkle with a little cold water and rake through with a fork until you have a lumpy, crumbly mixture. Put this in the freezer for 10 minutes, or if making ahead, in the fridge until you're ready to bake.
  4. Meanwhile, put your prepared fruit in a lightly greased, shallow baking dish, and sprinkle with sugar – taste it first to see how much you think it needs. You can also add any spices at this point (½ tsp ground cinnamon or ginger, for example, for apples or plums).
  5. Arrange the crumble over the top of the fruit – don't press it down – and sprinkle with oats or nuts if using. Bake for about half an hour, until golden and bubbling, and serve slightly cooled.
