It's a traditional favourite - my version is tangy and I add porridge oats to give the topping a bit of a gooey flapjack quality. In this recipe I use apple filling and make two little individual crumbles but feel free to use your favourite fruit. The main point of this video is to show you how to make and store a large quantity of the crumble topping. The recipe makes a really big bag of the topping to pop in the freezer. It freezes extremely well and stays a crumb-like texture so you can simply sprinkle it straight over fresh or frozen fruit for the most low effort tasty dessert, any day of the week!
Large mixing bowl
Oven dish or ramekins to bake the crumble
1 large freezer bag or several little ones
