Crumble has to be butter!!!!!!!!

Way too much margarine compared to flour. If you go by these measurements you end up with more of a dough than a crumble. 40-50g of margarine should do it. Other than that tasty and the kids enjoyed making it.

We have made this three times so now and it is so delicious every time. We use two plums and an apple, use half the crumble mix and put the other half in the freezer for next time and only add half the suggested oats and sugar. Would recommend.
