For the filling

  • 1 bunch rhubarb about 1.3lb/600g, trimmed, cut into 1"/2.5cm pieces
  • 1 punnet strawberries ½lb/250g, hulled and halved
  • 2 medium cooking apples peeled, cored and diced into 5/8”/1.5cm pieces
  • 1/4 cup superfine sugar caster sugar

For the topping


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F, combination steam setting. If your oven has variable humidity, use 60%. If not, don't worry! Just select combi steam at the correct temperature and the oven will work out the humidity for you.

Prepare the filling

  • Mix the fruit and sugar together in a bowl, then divide between 8 dishes (if making one larger crumble, put it all into a single baking dish).

Make the crumble

  • Cube the butter and put it into a bowl with the flour, almond meal, oats, sugar, salt and spice.
  • Rub the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles damp sand. Gently mix the nuts through, then pile the crumble over the fruit. Don’t press down, you want it to be quite loose and uneven.
  • Bake the crumbles until the topping is golden and the fruit is collapsed and syrupy, about 15 minutes. Serve hot with custard, ice cream or double cream.


I bake this in 8 individual 1-cup ramekins. If you'd rather make a single large crumble that's fine. It will need a little longer in the oven, somewhere around 20-25 minutes.
