A simple dessert that everyone likes! Very easy to prepare, but takes some time to cook. Just put in the oven when you serve your main dish and you will have a hot, fresh end delicious fruit crumble as dessert!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: 3
  • 750g fresh fruit (I used pears, plums and strawberries)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 50g flour
  • 50g oats
  • 30g sugar
  • 50g butter, softened
  • optional: ice cream and/or whipped cream to serve
  1. Preheat your oven to 180° C.
  2. Wash and chop the fruit into big chunks. Strawberries and plums can stay bigger, pear needs to be a little smaller, because it takes longer to cook.
  3. Put the fruit into a casserole dish and mix with 1 tablespoon of sugar (or more, if your fruit is not sweet enough)
  4. Pepare the crumble mixture: Put flour, oats, butter and sugar into a bowl and mix with a fork or with your fingers until combined. Sprinkle on top of the fruit. I like the crumbles to be in bigger chunks, so I press them together with my fingers and then put them on top.
  5. Bake the fruit crumble for about 45 minutes. If the crumbles get too dark, cover with aluminium foil.
  6. Serve with generous dollops of ice cream and whipped cream and dig in!
Some freshly cut mint tastes great on this too! Or try to put a little cinnamon or vanilla into the crumble mix for a different taste.
