Persimmon Crumble

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 2 minutes   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:


The Humble Crumble is a bit of an English thing, but these sorts of recipes do appear in other cuisines under different guises.

They are also called crisps, cobblers, streusels or Smulpaj (a similar Swedish dessert)!

They originated in World War II in the UK when rationing limited the amount of ingredients available for pastry and so cheaper more readily available things like oats were substituted into the toppings for the cooked fruit, which apparently was aplenty!

We have a Humble Crumble ebook that is available to Insiders only at this stage. It was a lot of fun to put together because literally any fruit can be paired with any topping, making a mix and match dessert very easy to achieve! This is one of those suggestions for the fruit base, and we loved it! Hoping you will too.
