About this recipe:This unique crumble is a great alternative to the norm. It uses persimmons, also called sharon fruit, and uses crushed digestive biscuits for the topping. Use the non-astringent persimmons for this recipe (the kind you can eat unripe). Make the most of the persimmons when they're in season late autumn.

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon cornflour
