- CRUMBLE TOPPING
- 100g Plain Flour
- 40g rolled (porridge) oats
- 25g (crushed) Special K
- 100g Unsalted Butter
- 75g Demerara Sugar
- 15g pumpking seeds (chopped if wish)
- 15g sunflower seeds or pine kernals
- Sift the flour into a bowl. Cut the butter into cubes and rub in - this means rubbing the mixture between your fingers allowing it to fall back into the bowl. It should eventually (about 5-10 minutes) reach fine bread crumb consistency with no lumps of butter left. Add the sugar, special K, Oats and seeds and mix in evenly. For a nuttier taste leave the pumpkin seeds whole or for a less nutty flavour either chop or process them or replace with equivalent amount of additional oats. Personally I double up this recipe and use one half then and freeze the other half for a quicker crumble next time.
- How much crumble you add over your fruit is a matter of great debate in our house. So far as I'm concerned the fruit is only there to make the bottom of my crumble wet, whereas, my wife thinks the crumble is just a thin layer to cover her fruit and keep it moist in the oven!
