Step 1

Prepare the fruit. With firm fruits, simmer until nearly
tender and add a little water and sugar to taste, the mixture must be fairly firm. With soft fruits, there is no need to pre-cook or soften them.

Step 2

Place the fruit into an oven proof dish.

Step 3

Rub the margarine or butter into the flour, add sugar and mix. Sprinkle over the top of the fruit and press the mix down firmly.

Step 4

Bake at 190°C for 30 - 40 minutes until crisp and golden brown.

For a healthier topping, replace half the flour and half the butter with 2oz porridge oats.
