What is the secret to a good crumble ?

Lots of butter in the crumble and a light hand ! Using seasonal fruit.

To make your crumble crunchy make sure you cook it long enough until it starts to get a good colour.

Bramley Apples are great for a crumble as they cook down so easily. You do not need to cook them beforehand.

You can substitute the brown sugar with caster or demerara sugar.

If you prefer you can leave the almonds out or toasted chopped blanched hazelnuts would be delicious also.
