Luckily, I made this crumble before the fridge died. The crumble doesn't really need refrigeration, but you may want to serve it with custard and/or ice cream and they do benefit from chilling.
This is similar to my apple and strawberry crumble, but simpler. It features just 6 ingredients and most of them are kitchen staples. In fact, it's so easy, I expect to repeat it before our stone fruit season is out. While I used nectarine, peach or plum would work equally well.
I tend to make my crumbles with little added sugar, relying on the fruit for sweetness and allowing any accompanying sides (aforementioned custard or ice cream) to boost the sweetness if needed. This is no exception. It met with Mr Bite's approval when paired with ice cream, and I found it sweet enough even served plain. With custard it was easily in the sweet dessert category.
