Skinny Fruit Crumble
700g/1½lb cooking (green) apples, peeled, cored and sliced
125g/4oz/1 cup + 2 tbsp plain (all-purpose) flour
50g/2oz/4 tbsp butter, softened
a pinch of ground cinnamon
25g/1oz/¼ cup icing (confectioner’s) sugar, sifted
1 Preheat the oven to 190°C/ 375°F/Gas 5.
2 Put the apples and blackberries in an ovenproof baking dish and sprinkle with artificial sweetener to taste.
3 Sift the flour into a large bowl. Cut the butter into tiny pieces and add to the flour. Rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the cinnamon and icing sugar together with 1 tbsp cold water.
4 Spoon the crumble mixture over the fruit and smooth the top. Bake in the oven for 25–30 minutes until the crumble is cooked and golden brown and the fruit is tender.
5 Serve the crumble hot with low-fat yogurt (25 kcals per rounded tablespoon), or reduced-fat ice cream (45 kcals per level scoop).
