Crumble Hogs

As you can see, my Plum and Peach Baked Crumble is half gone! This was not by design! This was not a styling decision! I had simply popped out, leaving it to cool on the Kitchen side…this is what I came back too, my family clearly couldn’t wait! Each one of them denied eating it, none of them have yet owned up to it…I have my suspicions! The cheeky smirk on their faces is a dead giveaway! I strongly Suspect my Husband and the Littlest one Leo. Both of which are Crumble hogs, I should have known better!

Clearly we have established the deliciousness of this Plum and Peach Baked Crumble! But what makes Crumbles so universally loved and why are they a family favourite in the UK?

What’s in a Crumble?

Its hard to top a Crumble, at least in a Brits eyes! Us English folk do love a good old Crumble! They basically consist of warm spiced, stewed fruit topped with a sweet crisp and textured Crumb. The meeting of these 2 elements is heavenly!

Plum Crumble

When did it all begin?

It all began in England during World War II, with the most Popular of Crumbles, the Apple Crumble. During Rationing, the Crumble was born from the need to find a more affordable alternative to Apple Pie. People could not afford to use precious rations on a pie, but they could spare the minimal ingredients to create a Crumble. In 1924 the first Apple Crumble Recipe was published, and so began the popularity of the dish. Since then, Variations of the first Classic Recipe have evolved, introducing new flavours and combinations, making the Crumble a worldwide sensation! Thanks also to its use of readily available Ingredients and the Affordability of the desert.
