Autumn Plum & Blackberry Crumble | Vegan & GF
This weekend we are hosting some friends for a little pre-Christmas get together, and all I can think about is making a warm gooey yet crunchy delicious seasonal crumble!
Apples are everywhere at the moment, so are pears! I made this a few weeks ago and completely forgot to share it with you, so here it is! My apple, plum & blackberry crumble.
The perfect autumn dessert, best served with coconut yoghurt or warm Oatly custard (if you haven’t tried it yet… please run to the shops - Tesco normally sells it - and try it out!)
Crumble is something I’ve been making with my mum since I was a little girl, it’s one of the easiest desserts you can make, it takes very little prep, and everything goes! I’ve made crumbles with so many different fruit, pick whatever is in season and works well together.
I love to add a handful of frozen berries too for the pop of colour and added antioxidants..!
3 small apples (ask what’s best cooked when shopping at the farm’ers market, but Braeburn or Granny Smith is normally a good shout!)
5 fresh plums
One big handful of frozen blackberries
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tbsp of brown sugar
1/2 lemon juice
1/2 cup of porridge oats
1 cup of GF flour (you can use regular plain flour OR do 1/2 flour and 1/2 almond meal)
2 tbsp of brown sugar
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of nutmeg (or sub both nutmeg and cinnamon for 1tsp of All Spice)
1/3 of coconut oil OR vegan butter softened (not melted)
Preheat your oven at 180C on fan.
Cut up your apples and plums into small chunks (take the cores out of the apples, I don’t bother peeling them if they’re organic - and pit your plums!)
Place the fruit including the frozen blackberries into an oven dish
Sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice and mix well together (I use my hands!)
On the side, in a mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredient for the topping and mix well, then add your softened butter or coconut oil on top, and mix together in pinching motions with your fingers to create a crumbly texture. (if you like more of a buttery crumble, add a little more vegan butter or coconut oil!)
Crumble the topping on top of the fruit and place in a pre-heated oven at 180C on fan for around 40 min or until the fruit is cooked through and has softened and your crumble is looking deliciously golden and crispy.
Let me know if you make this over the weekend! I am planning on making this on Saturday night with whatever apples and other seasonal fruit I find at the market that morning, it’s going to be delicious! Saturday is also the day we decorate our tree for Christmas…!! I CANNOT WAIT!
