"DH got this recipe from a camp buddy, they had the crumble mix in their camp freezer and just opened up the can and used a round cake tin which fitted in their camp oven put it in the coals of the fire and covered the lid with coals and cooked for a 15 to 20 minutes and served with custard and everyone declared it really good."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

For the crumble, place the egg yolks, vanilla paste, sour cream and iced water in a jug and whisk with a fork to combine well.

Step 2

Place the remaining crumble ingredients in a food processor and blitz for 30 seconds, pouring over the egg mixture as you go, until the crumble is uniform in colour and be careful not to over-mix.

Step 3

Preheat the grill/broiler to medium.

Step 4

Grease an oven-proof gratin dish with a little butter.

Step 5

Drain the tinned fruit and spread over the base of the greased dish. If you dig cinnamon, sprinkle some extra over the apple.

Step 6

Top the fruit with as much crumble mixture as looks right (Usually when I make this I use 1/4 - 1/3 of the total mixture.)

Step 7

Store the remaining crumble mixture in 2 sandwich-sized ziplock bags, label them (this is important!!) and pop them in the freezer for an emergency.

Step 8

Place the gratin dish under the grill/broiler and cook for 15 minutes or until golden brown, toasty and yummy and serve hot with custard, cream or ice cream.

Step 9

NOTES - 1. When your “emergency” arises, you can cook the crumble while it’s still frozen. 2 • Instead of canned apples you could of course use fresh apples, use a mix of 6 – 8 tart green apples and sweet fuji apples cooked down with the juice of 1 orange and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
