Quick fruit crumble
An apple and raspberry crumble in 15 minutes? That's right – with our smart shortcuts this comforting pud will be on the table before you can say 'what's for dessert?'
- Serves: 3 persons
- 2dessert apples
- 150g raspberries (or any berries you have)
- orange juice (optional)
- 3-4 oat biscuits
- ready-made custard, to serve
Step 1Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Peel and finely slice the apples. Tip into a pan with the berries and slowly bring to a simmer, squashing the berries with the back of a spoon to release some of the juices. You shouldn’t need to add any liquid but you can add a splash of orange juice or water if it seems too dry. Remove from the heat.
Step 2Smash 3-4 oat biscuits in a food bag using a rolling pin. Tip the fruit into a baking dish, sprinkle over the crushed biscuits and put into the oven for a few minutes to warm through (if you're making this after cooking dinner, you can just use the residual heat of the oven). Serve with hot or cold ready-made custard.
