  • Feelingcheeky? Why not pair this delicious crumble with an indulgentdollop or two of classic vanilla ice cream?
  • Be sure to grease the dish before baking to stop the crumble from sticking to the edges.
  • Choose a dish that is large but not too deep, shallow dishes tend to work better for crumbles.
