Crumble has become very popular here in France over the last few years and my French guests love this one particularly. It is worth while searching out some fresh Apricots for this.


- 12 Apricots

- 90g (3 oz.) Sugar

- 60g (2 oz.) Slivered Almonds


- 124g (4 oz.) Flour

- 90g (3 oz.) Sugar

- 125g (4 oz.) Ground Almonds

- 175g (6 oz.) Butter


Halve and slice the apricots and

discard the stones. Put the sliced apricots in the bottom of an oven proof dish and sprinkle over the sugar.

Mix together the flour, sugar and the ground almonds and rub in the butter or whizz together in a food processor. Spread this mixture evenly over the peaches and sprinkle the slivered almonds on the top.

Bake this at Gas 6 200C 400F for 20 minutes then turn down the oven to 180C 350F Gas 4 and cook for another twenty minutes.

Serve warm or hot with cream.
