- 400-500g fresh fruit (about 4 eating apples or pears and 6 plums)*
- 100g Flour
- 50g butter or unsaturated margarine
- 25g sugar

Preheat the oven onto 190 °C (gas mark 5). Sieve the flour into a bowl. Break the butter or margarine into chunks and rub into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, mixing it with your fingers.
Wash, peel and slice the fruit, removing any seeds or pips. Arrange the sliced fruit in the ovenproof dish.
Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the fruit. Put the dish on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 40 minutes until the top is golden brown and the filling bubbles up round the edges.
