  1. Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6. Put the chopped apple and rhubarb into a suitable ovenproof dish. Pour over the sugar and vanilla extract and then toss together. Roast in the oven for 15 mins.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, make the crumble topping. Place the flour, oats, sugar and flaked almonds into a large mixing bowl and toss together.
  3. Step 3

    Add the cold cubed butter and, using your fingertips, rub the mixture together into a rough crumbly texture until everything is incorporated and there are no large lumps of butter left. It should take about 5-6 mins.
  4. Step 4

    Remove the apple and rhubarb from the oven. Use a wooden spoon to gently give the fruit a mix. Now top with the crumble filling and bake in the oven for 30-35 mins until golden on top.
  5. Step 5

    Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 mins before serving with ice cream or custard.
