Jam Crumble

Jam Crumble

Everyone loves a crumble, right? The process starts out similar to making a pie crust but in the end it is way easier and super fun to make. I like this recipe because I typically have all the ingredients on hand, you know, for emergency baking situations. This recipe is for a 9x9 sized baking sheet but you can double it and do a 9x13 if you are serving more people. Now, let's get ready to crumble!!

  • 1.5 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) unsalted, cold and cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 8 oz (1 cup) Austin Jam Company jam
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh orange juice
  • 1.5 cups of confectioners’ sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a 9x9 baking sheet with parchment paper. Make the sheet of parchment large than the baking dish so it's easy to pull out the dessert and cut at the end.
  2. Start by mixing flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Next add the cubed butter. Make sure it's cold.
  4. Use your hands (or a pastry cutter) to cut the butter until you are left with small pea-sized crumbles.
  5. Next whisk the egg, milk and almond extract together and pour over the crumbles.
  6. Gently mix together, it should look slightly moist and sandy.
  7. Reserve 1 cup of the crumble and set aside for the topping. Press the rest of the crumble into the bottom of your baking sheet.
  8. Next mix the jam with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and pour over your crust in the baking sheet.
  9. Top with the remaining 1 cup of crumble. Add a little salt on top of the crumble if desired.
  10. Bake for 40-50 mins. Mine took about 45 minutes.
  11. Now make the icing, mix 1 tablespoon of orange juice with 1.5 cups of confectioners' sugar.
  12. When ready, move crumble from the oven and let cool for 10 mins in baking sheet then lift parchment paper on to a wire rack.
  13. Once cool drizzle over the icing mixture, cut and serve.
