    Mmmmm all these different versions of crumble mix, guess who's having crumble for supper..lol. I have a tin of apple and blackberry fruit in the cupboard and I think I will make my own topping instead of opening the packet that I have in supply.. DH will be in heaven..crumble with ice cream, mmmmmmmmmmmm

  • This might sound like a stupid question, but can you cook it in a metal flan pan? Or does it need to be a ceramic dish?

    I dont come from a great cookery background so I've not got much intuition on these things.

    Near us there is a shortbread factory which sells shortbread crumbs in a large bag - I can freeze and have instant crumble - it is very yummy

    Happy, I suppose there is no harm in cooking a crumble in a metal flan tin, as long as the base isnt removable. Otherwise the fruit will leak out the base..

    Hummm I think it does have a removeable base, I'll have to invest in a proper ceramic dish. I did have a Le Cruset dish but it cracked in the oven the second time I used it. I was not impressed as I'd binned the recipe, complete waste of money!!! :mad:

    Next time I see one of those old school canteen sandy coloured dishes, I'll buy one!

  • For a really tasty crumble topping I use wholemeal flour, coconut, brown sugar and rolled oats ( as well as butter of course). Its also good with a pinch or two of cinnamon or ginger. mmmmm delicious over plums.

    I would always use a ceramic dish, dont know why lol

    I use pyrex, ceramic and enamel - depends on how much fruit I've got. I think the enamel is probably the best, as raw fruit cooks quicker than in the others. I think I found it in a charity shop for 20p!
  • I tried 1/3 flour and 2/3 porridge oats/wheatbran mix from Tesco (a new product I think...it's about 80p), plus dark sugar for a change to my usual rhubarb crumble topping and it was absolutely delicious!

    :D
