Crumble means Autumn and Autumn brings with it sewing names into gloves, collecting pine cones, drinking more red wine than in summer and icy cold putting the washing out fingers. If you find yourself lucky to be bestowed with a bag of apples, plums or any other glut of fruit may I suggest you make a crumble using this topping. As for the fruit… well I used raspberry and apple and a small handful of sugar. Stewed until just tender and the juice thickened a little. You can use raw fruit instead, just expect a little more juice leakage. Serve with custard, cream or ice-cream.

Pecan & oat crumble topping
- 125g chopped pecans
- 250g plain flour
- 100g demerara sugar
- 100g butter
- 50g oats
- 30mls double cream
Mix the pecans, flour and sugar then rub in the butter using your hands. I’m afraid I’m not of the belief you can make good crumble with a food processor. It seems to result in sand rather than rubble. Then stir through the oats and the cream. Use your hands to gather clumps of crumble, scrunching until some pieces are large and some smaller. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and then use atop any fruit you desire. I bake my crumble at 180C/gas mark 4 for about 40 minutes until golden.

How many people does this crumble topping serve? I’m relatively new to baking and going to try a crumble using your topping recipe this weekend. Thanks :)
Probably serves 8 but you can freeze any extra crumble topping. X
Fab thanks Holly x
