The Humble Crumble

This has to be one of the easiest and most delicious desserts you can make.

Just wash/peel/chop whatever fruit you fancy- I had lots of apples near their best before that I used.

Sprinkle over some sugar, water and some lemon juice (to stop the apples from browning) over the fruit.

Make the topping with approx 200g flour, 110g golden caster sugar and 110g butter. Rub with the tips of your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs then spread over the fruit.

Cook it ’til it’s golden brown and serve with custard, cream or ice cream. Easy peasy.

For this crumble though, instead of sprinkling over water; I boiled the apple peel with sugar and cinnamon, then strained away from the peel and poured over the fruit for extra flavour.
