Quick Crumble

If you don't have time to make the filling and a cordin bleu chef style crumble topping, here is a quick and easy dessert just for you!
  • Total time:20-30 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

200g of sugar
300g of flour
50g of margarine
A handful of oats (Extra fibre)
1 jar of Hartleys Crumble Filler (Your choice of flavour)
1 mixing bowl
Heatproof dish
1 Spoon

Method

Wash your hands and all your equipment. Hygieneis very important! 
Preheat your oven to 200'c before preparing anything else. 
Next get your heatproof dish and fill the dish with the filling with the spoon. If you get any on the side scrape it back down because that will burn onto the dish. 
Then sieve the flour into the bowl, add the sugar then add the margarine and rub the ingredients together with your fingertips. Don't use the palms of your hands otherwise the mixture will go stodgy. Repeat until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. 
Next spoon all of the crumble mix in a heap in the middle of the crumble. Then, using your spoon, spread the crumble mix over the fruit filling. Don't press the crumble mix down otherwise it will be flat and hard not crumbly. 
After Step 4 you can sprinkle oats and some more sugar over the top of the crumble for extra fibre or extra sweetness if you have a sweet tooth! Then put it in the oven for 20 minutes. 
Keep checking it every 5 minutes and turning it around in the oven if necessary. 
Let the crumble stand for about 5 minutes then serve immediately after cooling with either ice cream, custard, cream or fresh fruit! Enjoy!

When you want to avoid alcohol

It is not easy giving up drink. Dry January is just around the corner when many people decide to give up alcohol either for charity reasons or to clear their systems after a month of mid-winter festivities. But as we age, our tolerance of alcohol can diminish.
