 Chocolate Crumble

Ingredients



250g self raising flour

a pinch of salt

85g caster sugar

85g unsalted butter chilled and cut into small pieces

75g plain chocolate grated or finely chopped

50g of chopped nuts (optional)

2 tablespoons of very finely chopped mixed peel

1 large egg

around 175ml single cream

chocolate chips and/or almonds to decorate

Preheat oven to 220C (425F) gas 7

Prepare a 12-hole tin, lined with paper cases or well-buttered to prevent sticking.

Sift the flour, salt, and sugar into a mixing bowl. Add the butter and, using the tips of your fingers, rub the mixture till it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Stir in the chocolate, nuts, and mixed peel. Break the egg into a measuring jug, and then add enough cream to the egg to make up to 230ml.

Add the egg and cream mixture to the bowl and mix with a round bladed knife until the dough comes together, still quite sticky.

Divide the dough equally between the prepared muffin cases, then decorate with chocolate chips or almonds.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 mins. Then reduce the heat to 180C (350F) gas 4 and bake for a further 5-10 mins or until golden brown and firm to the touch.

Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack. When completely cold, store in an airtight container, and eat within two days. Can be frozen for up to one month.
