Fig Crumble Dessert

Try fig crumble as an alternative to the more traditional apple crumble. As the cooler nights start to set in whip up this dish to warm the soul. 



  • 8 – 10 Figs
  • Castor sugar
  • Crumble topping
  • 1/2 cup self raising flour*
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 60g butter
  • Walnuts

*Self raising flour gives the dish a more puffy top. Use plain flour for a more crumbly texture.


Preheat oven to 180˚C fan forced. Dice or slice figs and fill oven proof ceramic bowl to three quarters full. Sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over the top of the figs.

Blend flour, brown sugar and butter in a processor until a crumbly mix has formed. Sprinkle over figs and finish with a handful of walnuts.


Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until crumble mix is golden brown. 

Serve warm with whipped cream.
