Crumble for pud ..

Crumble is one of those puddings which can have any seasonal filling added to it ... tonight we had rhubarb and apple. For the filling, I just simmer the fruit with water and a little sugar to taste. If it's rhubarb I add a little ground ginger too :~)

Crumble topping recipe

8oz plain white flour
8oz plain wholemeal flour
6oz butter
7oz sugar

Rub the flour and butter together until it resembles breadcrumbs and then stir in the sugar.

Variations: You can swap (weight for weight) the flour for oats or chopped nuts although it's best not to go below 8oz flour as it acts to bind the crumble together.
