Apple and Plum crumble cake

Ingredients - serves 12 - 3 points per serve

  • 125 g brown sugar
  • 225 g Weight Watchers Fruit Basket Museli
  • 1 tsp Master Foods Herbs and Spices Mixed Spice
  • 125 g Weight Watchers Canola Spread, melted
  • 2 medium apple, peeled, cored, sliced
  • 125 g plum, halved, stones removed
  • 25 g sultanas
  • 1 tbs raw sugar


  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line an 18cm spring form cake tin with baking paper. Mix together the brown sugar, muesli and mixed spice.

  • Stir the melted spread into the muesli mixture, then tip about two thirds of the mixture into the prepared cake tin. Press down lightly and arrange half the apples, plums and sultanas on top.

  • Sprinkle with the remaining crumble mixture, then the remaining fruit. Press down lightly. Sprinkle with sugar.

  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until firm and golden brown. Stand the tin on a wire rack and cool for 15-20 minutes then remove from the tin. Carefully remove the baking paper.
    Serve the cake warm or cold


  • This crumble cake has a very crumbly texture so make sure to cut using a small serated knife if possible. Also, it is delicious substituting the plums and apples with peach and nectarine slices, and dusting with ground cinnamon instead of the mixed spice.
