Easy Nectarine Crumble

This recipe is AMAZING! So quick and easy to make, yet visually impressive, complex in flavour and delicious on a wet and windy day (Which we've had more than our fair share of recently). I've used just ripe nectarines, but it works equally well with other soft fruits such as plums or figs. I'm even thinking about trying mangoes with a little coconut thrown into the crumble, but I'll leave that one for another day!

Prep time: 10 Minutes
Baking time: 35-40 Minutes
4 Large Ripe Nectarines (Stones removed and quartered)
Juice of 1 Lemon
3tbsp Golden Syrup
100g Jumbo Oats
50g Light Muscovado Sugar
50g Unsalted Butter

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Mix the nectarines gently with the lemon juice and golden syrup (Using your hands will make this much easier), then tip the lot into a medium oven proof dish. Spread the nectarines out so they evenly cover the base of the dish. In a separate bowl rub the butter into the oats and sugar (Again, get your hands in there!), then scatter over the top of the nectarines. It's fine if there are a few gaps, as that will allow the syrup to bubble through and the edges of some of the nectarines to caramelise. Place in the centre of the oven for 35-40 minutes until the crumble is an even golden brown, then remove and serve. This one is delicious on it's own or with cream, custard or ice cream. Personally I love a blob of cold vanilla ice cream in mine!
