Cheat's crumble

Apple, rhubarb, apricot crumble, together or separately, perfect for a winter dessert.  Sometimes making a crumble can be a lot of effort especially if you are only making it for two people.  I revert to a cheat's version.

All you need to do is rub together unsalted butter, flour, oats and your choice of extras.  I like to add in chopped up dried apricot, dessicated coconut, chopped nuts, choc chips... mmm.  Rub it until it is all mixed together and clumpy.

Then all you do is fry it in a fry pan, no oil because the butter in the mixture will be enough.  Cook it until the things start to brown and there are no clumps of butter or flour.  Pour on stewed fruit (or pie fruit from a tin) and maybe top with some cream.
