Indulge in this single-serve apple and guava crumble this Autumn.

Food writer Nici Wickes says "fruit crumbles are one of the easiest things to whip up for a solo diner - the trick is using a dish that is small enough for one serve".


  • 1-2 cups chopped fruit, e.g. apple (no need to peel) and guavas or berries (use frozen, if necessary)
  • 1 heaped Tbsp rolled oats
  • 1 heaped Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 heaped Tbsp flour
  • 1 heaped Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat chopped fruit with a splash of water.
  3. In a small bowl, rub together the rolled oats, sugar, flour and butter until the mixture resembles rustic crumbs.
  4. Add the vanilla extract to the warm fruit and transfer to an ovenproof bowl. Top the fruit with the crumble and bake for 15–20 minutes. Perfect with whipped cream or ice cream
