Ashleigh's Autumn Fruit Crumble




  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C
  2. Peel and core the apples, then quarter and chop into 3cm chunks. Cut the plums into chunks and halve grapes.
  3. Place in a saucepan on a medium heat with 100g of sugar and a few fine gratings of lemon zest.
  4. Pop the lid on and cook for 5 minutes, or until the apples have softened. Remove the heat and leave to cool a little.
  5. While fruit is cooling, cube the butter and place in a mixing bowl with the flour. Rub together with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs, then scrunch in the remaining sugar to add a little texture.
  6. Transfer the fruit to a 25cm x 30cm baking dish and sprinkle over the crumble topping.
  7. Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden and bubbling. Served with vanilla custard and/or ice cream.
