Plate Up. Apple & Banana Coconut Crumble

As much as I was hoping for a speedy onslaught of summer, it's still rather chilly here in Melbourne town. And what does one do on a grey windy spring day? Well, some may go shopping, some may head for a cosy wine bar... In my case, I bake.

And what says cosy better than a warm crumble?

What you'll need
90g plain flour
120g rolled oats
120g unsalted butter, softened
100g brown sugar
90g dessicated coconut
3 medium sized apples, chopped
3 bananas, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon cinnamon

What to do
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Butter an oven-safe dish and line the base with the chopped fruits, sprinkling the cinnamon over the top.

Next, the oh-so-crumbly topping. Pop the butter, flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a bowl then rub together with your fingers. When it's a nice crumb, you know you're done.

Sorry, I couldn't resist... Nothing better than a baking rhyme right?

Sprinkle it over your fruit and then pop it in the oven and wait for the sweet fruit and buttery crumb smells to permeate the house like a cuddle from your favourite grandparent.

Serve with your preferred accompaniment, be it ice-cream, custard or creme. Go on, be a devil.
