- The Crumble Thread
What’s your favourite topping mixture? Do you like oats? Granulated or demera? Nuts? What’s your favourite filling? How many fruit varieties in one crumble filling is too many? Is a fruit crumble a pie? Should people who make savoury crumbles be shot?

Apple and blackberry is the best. Butter, golden gran. sugar and flour for the crumble. A small glug of whiskey (deliberate ‘e’ there) on the fruit. Jamesons is great. Frozen blackberries work well as they keep their shape during cooking. Not saying boughten, just frozen.
Make a mound with the crumble as opposed to flat over it. It gives a variety of textures.
Custard should be proper ie. a shit ton of eggs, cream etc.
Savoury? Nuts? Oats? GTF!

I generally don’t bake as I don’t follow recipes, I just wing it (baking generally needs precise ish weights)
But crumbles are easy as you just need to nail the consistency of the topping and you’re sorted
Made an apple and blackberry (plus one pear). Topping was butter, oat flour, plain flour and caster sugar. Drizzled with honey which went nice and chewyPosted 3 years agomark90Member
What’s your favourite filling?
Gather blackberries when they are in season. Fill kilner jar with said blackberries, add a bit of sugar, fill jar with whiskey, not too cheap but no need for your best single malt. Store in a cool dark place and shake/agitate daily for about a month. Leave in cool dark place for another couple of months.
Just before christmas filter the blackberries and decant the whiskey into bottles. Now you have the blackberries for making the best blackberry and apple crumble ever! 😀Posted 3 years ago
