Plum and Summer Fruit Krumble

Standard

Plum Krumble

What better way to show solidarity with our fairtrade fruit-farming brothers and sisters than by smothering the plummy fruits of their labour with a “liberal” layer of crumbley goodness.

Ingredients
Plums, halved and stones removed
Sugar
Mixed summer fruit (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries etc)
Flour
Butter
Muesli (such as, but not limited to, Dorset Cereals’ ‘Berries and Cherries’)
More sugar
Cinnamon
Ground ginger

Measurements: each according to their need.
Serves: the people.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C or gas mark 4.
  • Add the fruit to a medium-depth dish and sprinkle a nice heap of sugar over it.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, and set aside to cool.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 200C or gas mark 6
  • Rub the butter and flour together in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the muesli, cinnamon, ginger and sugar to the mixture. Get your hands right in there and mix them up. Don’t even think about putting them in a blender – blenders are the kitchen utensils of the bourgeois.
  • Pile your krumble over your fruit mixture and bake that beauty for 15 minutes.
  • Serve with custard or vanilla ice-cream and share widely.
