About this recipe:This is a basic crumble which can almost literally be thrown together on the run and put in the oven. There is no need to stand around waiting for one stage of the recipe to be completed before being able to do the next. The tartness of the gooseberries offsets the sweetness of the crumble.
Altered ingredient amounts.
Other fruit may be used instead of gooseberries, e.g. rhubarb, apricots. The procedure is the same, although one may wish to alter the amount of sugar at stage 2 according to taste. - 29 Jul 2010
