Recipes- Crumble Topping

Well, I am waiting for my paperwork to go through for my candidature and am working on Ethics Applications, and papers for conferences next year. So in the lead up to Christmas I will be putting up some recipes we like. I hope you enjoy them.

Here is a recipe that is yummy for either hot or cold weather.

Topping for Fruit Crumble

(for apple/fruit crumble. From Super food Ideas, July 2002 Page 27)


½ cup plain flour

30gm low fat margarine or butter

½ cup rolled oats

¼ cup brown sugar

½ teaspoon mixed spice

What to do:

1.     Combine flour and butter in bowl, mixing with fingertips until breadcrumb consistency.

2.     Add remaining ingredients to bowl and mix well.

3.     Sprinkle over chopped fruit

4.     Bake at 1800 for 15-20 minutes. This will cook fruit too (don’t need to stew first!!)

I sometimes make a big batch of this topping and have found I can use half straight away, and freeze the other half in a freezer bag.  It makes a really quick dessert for another night.  Can use almost any chopped fresh fruit (apple, pear, nectarines etc) or frozen berries.
