Make this ahead of time! Just assemble and bake a couple of hours before you plan to serve it. The crumble topping can keep in the fridge for a couple of days. You can prepare the chopped fruit earlier and keep it in the baking dish you’re planning to use, then just mix in the sugar and flour right before cooking.

scant 1 tablespoon flour
mantecado ice cream or yogurt, to serve (optional)

Substitution tip:  If you don't have walnuts or if you want to make this a truly tropical dessert, try using chopped cashews or pili nuts instead.
