Gluten-free crumble

It's Autumn, it's damp, it's time for crumble.  Here's an easy recipe for a fruit crumble with a gluten-free topping.  The topping has a finer texture than that made with wheat flour but in a good way.

250g fruit stewed until soft with 1 tbsp sugar and 1tbsp water (I used half a pack of Aldi summer berries)
125g rice flour
25g oats (some coeliacs are sensitive to oats, some aren't; if you're not sure leave them out)
70g butter
70g caster sugar

Pre-heat the oven to 200 celcius.

Mix together the sugar and rice flour, add the butter and rub the mixture through your finger tips until it resembles crumbs.  Stir in the oats.

Put the stewed fruit in an oven proof dish and pour the topping over it.  Bake for between 20 and 30 minutes until golden on top, take out and tuck in.


  1. Mmmmm! Thank you for putting the notion into my head that 'now it's crumble-season'! :-)

  2. Fabulous comfort food! Why is it we always crave things like this in the cooler months?
