Your rating: None
Many people make crumbles but they can be dry and gritty. If you follow the 4-3-2-1 method you will make perfect crumbles every time.
What you'll need: 
4oz (114g) plain flour
3oz (90g) sugar
2oz (60g) margarine or spread e.g. Flora
1 pinch of salt (optional)
Peeled, cored and chopped fruit
Extra sugar
1: 
Rub the spread into the flour with your fingers to make a crumbly mixture.
2: 
Stir in the sugar and, if required, add a little salt.
3: 
Half or three quarters fill a pie dish with any prepared fruit or fruit mixtures including cooking apples, blackcurrants, raspberries or apricots. If necessary, sprinkle on extra sugar.
4: 
Scatter over the crumble mixture but do not press down too firmly.
5: 
Bake at 180oC or Gas Mark 4 for 35 minutes.
Conclusion: 
Fruit crumbles are delicious served warm or cold.
Tips: 
For a healthier pudding, replace 1/2 - 1oz of flour with porridge oats.
