Stone Fruit Crumble



There's something about this whole Covid malarkey that's making me crave comfort food and it's hard to beat the old classics for comfort. I had a fruit box delivered and it was mainly stone fruit so what better way to use them than in a crumble. It's a quick and easy recipe to put together.


Serves 2-3


Ingredients

Fruit base

8 stone fruit, I used a mix of plums and peaches.

2 tbsp. Chambord

1 tbsp. maple syrup

2 tsp. vanilla extract

Crumble topping

4 tbsp. flour

2 tbsp. desiccated coconut

2 tbsp. butter

2 tbsp. monk fruit or sweetener

75g oats

2 tbsp. butter


Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

  2. Cut the fruit into eighths (1/8), removing the stones. Place in a pot with the maple syrup, Chambord and vanilla essence. Cook until the fruit has softened slightly and the liquid has turned syrupy.

  3. While the fruit is cooking start preparing the crumble.

  4. In a big bowl, add the butter and the flour and lightly rub with clean fingers until it looks like crumb. Mix in the coconut, oats and sweetener.

  5. Add the fruit to the base of a baking dish and sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.

  6. Bake in the oven until the crumble top is nice and golden, about 20 minutes or so.

Serve with custard or ice cream or heck have both
