• 400g apple, peeled, cored and cut into small pieces
  • 400g stoned plum, cut into chunky wedges
  • 2 tbsp sugar, any type
  • 300g fig, woody stalks trimmed, quartered
  • 300g blackberry or brambles, washed well
  • cream, custard or ice cream, to serve

For the topping


  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.
