Sat, 11/24/2018 - 06:04

Three twists on a classic fruit crumble for a chilly weekend

Sat, 11/24/2018 - 05:00

Nothing ends a Sunday lunch quite like a knobbly, bubbling crumble straight out of the oven – preferably drenched in double cream, custard, or flanked by a scoop of ice cream.  Although it's hard to beat a classic apple crumble, for which most home cooks have a recipe committed to memory, the bounty of late autumn and winter fruits make a lovely, tart alternative for a softly cooked base.  And it's not just the fruit you can mix up – try swapping regular flour for spelt flour, adding ground almonds to the oats, and warming spices to further pep up your pud.  Plum, blackberry and blueberry crumble with rosemary and lemon syrup Credit: Philippa Langley Both blackberries and blueberries have quite subtle flavours, but the combination with sweet plums, aromatic rosemary and sharp lemon really lifts them up. SERVES Eight to 10 INGREDIENTS For the filling 80g light brown muscovado or coconut sugar Pared zest of 1 unwaxed lemon and 50ml juice 4 small sprigs of rosemary 60ml water 700g firm-ish ripe plums (pitted weight), pitted and halved 250g blackberries, fresh or frozen 250g blueberries, fresh or frozen For the topping 100g wholegrain spelt or wheat flour 100g rolled or jumbo oats, or a mixture of both 100g ground almonds 80g light brown muscovado or coconut sugar 150g chilled unsalted butter, cubed, or virgin coconut oil (butter creates a crunchier crumble) METHOD Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas 4. In a medium-large saucepan, bring the sugar, lemon zest and juice and rosemary to the boil with the water. Add the plum halves, reduce the heat and cover with a lid for 10 minutes, stirring now and again. Now turn off the heat, lightly mix in the blackberries and blueberries and set aside. In a free-standing mixer fitted with a paddle, by hand, or with a food processor, combine the flour, oats, ground almonds and sugar. Add the butter or coconut oil and process until the mix resembles crumbs. Remove the rosemary and lemon zest from the cooked plums and berries (although I quite like to leave the lemon zest in, it’s up to you). Pour the fruits into an ovenproof dish: using a shallow, longer dish will allow for a crumblier top; a taller dish will mean that part of the crumble absorbs the juice and becomes soft. Spread the crumble over the top and bake for 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the juices bubbling up around the edges. Serve hot. Keep any leftovers in the fridge for up to five days. The raw crumble mix can be frozen in freezer bags for at least a month. Recipe from The Natural Baker by Henrietta Inman (Jacqui Small, £20) Apple, pear and blackberry crumble Credit: Sam Gates Using autumn bounty, spices and not much sugar, this crumble delivers sweetness without being cloying. SERVES Eight INGREDIENTS 4 Bramley apples, peeled, cored and cut into big chunks 4 tsp cornflour 4 tbsp dark brown soft sugar Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon 4 Conference pears, peeled, cored and cut into thick slices 250g blackberries For the crumble topping 200g plain flour 80g golden caster sugar 60g dark brown soft sugar 75g rolled oats ½ tsp ground cinnamon Good pinch of mixed spice 180g butter, diced, plus extra for greasing METHOD Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas 4 and butter a traybake tin. To make the crumble, mix the flour, sugars, oats and spices together. Scatter the diced butter around the mix and turn it over with a spoon so it is well distributed. Either blitz in a food processor or rub the butter into the flour mix until it is the consistency of fine breadcrumbs. Toss the apple chunks in the cornflour, then tip into a saucepan with 200ml of water, the brown sugar, lemon zest and juice, and cook for five to 10 minutes until the apple is just starting to break down. Remove the pan from the heat and tip in the blackberries and pear slices. Stir well and pour into your traybake tin. Scatter the crumble mixture over the top and cook for 45 to 50 minutes until browned on top and purple juice start to peep through. Serve hot. Recipe from The Tin & Traybake Cookbook by Sam Gates (Robinson, £16.99) Plum crumble Credit: Andrew Burton SERVES Eight to 10 INGREDIENTS For the poached plums 1kg plums, stones removed 200g caster sugar 300ml cold water 1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped out 2 whole star anise For the crumble topping 160g unsalted butter 200g plain flour 200g demerara sugar 100g crushed hazelnuts or whole almonds METHOD Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/Gas 6. First make the plum filling. You can cook the plums in halves or sliced into segments – the bigger the pieces the longer they will take to cook, but you will have better control over the cooking and a more consistent texture. Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over the lowest heat possible, until the plums are soft and tender and their juices have released. Strain the plums through a sieve and reserve the poaching liquid in a separate saucepan. Place on the heat and reduce to a thick sauce that sticks to the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and leave to cool before adding the plums back to the liquid. Fill one large ovenproof dish or eight to 10 smaller dishes no more than two thirds full with the compote, and set aside. To make the crumble topping, rub the butter and flour into large clumps (leaving large clumps creates a lovely rubbly texture), then stir in the sugar and hazelnuts. Spread the topping on to a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and spoon the baked crumble topping over the compote, pressing down as you go. Return to the oven for a further 15 minutes, or until the fruit below is bubbling through. When ready, serve with custard or ice cream. Any plums or crumble topping not required can be kept in the fridge or freezer for another day. Recipe from Puddings by Johnny Shepherd (W&N, £20)
