Apple and Raspberry Crumble

This is an extremely versatile pudding as it can be made with a number of different fruits allowing you to take advantage of whatever fruit is available. Pear and ginger crumble (use a little ground ginger) is another delicious variant or if you are trying to keep costs down forget the raspberries in our featured recipe, add some more apple instead and spice it up with some ground cinnamon for a delicious Spicy Apple Crumble or add blackberries when you can pick these from our hedgerows for an Apple and Blackberry Crumble.
