How to Make Fruit Crumbler

  • 1.Preheat the oven to 190 C. Put the fruit into a pan with sugar and the balsamic vinegar, put the pan over the heat, and cook gently until the juices begin to run from the berries.
  • 2.Pour into an oven proof dish.
  • 3.Meanwhile make the topping.
  • 4.Rub the cold butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • 5.Add the sugar and salt stir well, then add the butter-milk to form a loose scone-type mixture.
  • 6.Spoon this over the hot fruit (to get a cobbled effect, flick balls of dough randomly over the fruit), sprinkle with a little caster sugar, and bake in your preheated oven for 30 mins until golden brown.
