I found this standard recipe for crumbles online, I just altered it a bit and used it as the base of my own recipe

Unfortunately, i don’t measure anything, i just do it by eye, So its hard to give my exact measurements but i’ll write down the recipe i used below for guidelines

Ingredients
For the crumble
300g/10½oz plain flour, sieved pinch of salt
175g/6oz unrefined brown sugar
200g/7oz unsalted butter, cubed at room temperature
Knob of butter for greasing

3. Plain White Sugar

4. Ground almonds

5. Butter

Preparation method
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Place the flour and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture.

Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Add your oats and ground almond to the mixture and keep on rubbing

If it looks to flour-y, add more butter.. Butter is key

Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the sugar, flour . Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit.
Butter an ovenproof dish.

Spoon the crumble mixture into the bottom, place fruit on the top and then sprinkle the rest of the crumble mixture on top.
I also sprinkle more brown and white sugar on the top of the crumble

Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling.
