~~~Let’s get ready to crumble~~~
|I need a picture of the cat here… because reasons 😉|
We had friends from Australia come to visit a little while ago. They were passing through Yorkshire on their way to Scotland, but had time to see the sights and have dinner at our place.
Q. What do you serve for dinner to visiting Aussies?
Dessert came down to me, so Mum and I brainstormed for something typically British and minimal effort… but the best we could come up with was some kind of jam-sponge-hot-pudding-thing! It was the Boyfriend who came to the rescue with the idea for a crumble. Making the most of berry season, we managed to pick all the blackberries ourselves on a walk round the back lanes of the village. Add in a few apples, cinnamon and a shortbread-style topping, and you’ve got the ultimate no-fuss dessert to impress houseguests from across the pond 😉
