A Decent Crumble...

If your looking for an extremely quick and easy to cook pudding then you can't go wrong with a crumble.

To make a crumble, you will need

8 ozs Plain flour.
4 ozs of butter/margarine.
3 ozs Sugar/Castor Sugar.
a pinch of salt.

Mix the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl, then add the butter.

With your hands rub the mixture together until there are no lumpy bits of butter remaining (You could also use a blender for this part).

The whole process should take about 5 minutes.

You can use almost anything as a filling some ideas include

Pears (tinned is ok)
Peaches (tinned is ok)
Peaches & pears
Apple & blackcurrent's

Or any combination of your favourite fruits.

Place the fruit into an oven proof dish, spread the crumble mix evently over the top of the fruit (Optionally you can sprinkle about 1 oz of sugar over the top).

To cook, heat the oven to gas mark 5/180 degrees. Place the dish in the centre of the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes (or until golden brown).

You can serve with custard, single cream, carnation or your favourite ice cream.
