Method

  1. First make the topping. Put the flours in a bowl with a pinch of salt, then rub in the butter with your fingertips to form crumbs. Stir in the sugar with a fork, and chill until needed.
  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Tip the apples, plums and sugar into a big saucepan with 50ml water and cook, stirring, for about 5 mins, until the apples are soft and juicy. Stir in the figs and blackberries, and tip into a baking dish. Scatter over the crumble and bake for 45-55 mins until the topping is golden and the fruit is bubbling.

Made this last week and it was yummy. I thought I would skip the pre-cooking of the apples but with hindsight it would have been better to have kept it in. The figs/apples/plums was a lovely combination.

Delicious. I agree with Onlychaz, it does make masses. I halved the crumble topping and there was still plenty. Also agree that the figs are a very tasty addition. Yum

This was so good, and so tasty! But it makes masses!! I had enough for three pie dishes (one large and two small). I managed to persuade my two dinner guests to have an extra spoonful to finish off the large dish, but I'd say this would easily serve 8 or more. Never had figs in a crumble before, but I'm sold!
