Crumble topping

    45 min

    This is a crumble topping recipe for one portion, which can be doubled, trebled, etc., to create a crumble topping for however many portions you need. It's great for when you have a little fruit that is overripe - just chuck the fruit into a ramekin, top with the crumble topping and bake!
