Crumble Crumble

Say goodbye to the fruit...

Many people would agree that the best part of a fruit crumble is the crumble, which when mixed with a nice dollop warm custard is divine. The fruit is simply there for variety and interest. Why, I ask, can't we have a crumble crumble, consisting of pure crumbley heaven? Sounds like a good idea to me.

       Is this a recipe? <Thinking>

       You can make your crumble anyway you want. Why is this an idea?
blissmiss, Oct 13 2002
  

       crumble = flour + lard + sugar. not really anything to get excited about. now lemon meringue pie!

       thats cookie, Rods.
po, Oct 13 2002
  

       Too many cookies spoil the crumble.
FarmerJohn, Oct 14 2002
  

       And too many broths spoil the cook.   

       Crumble crumble? Yumble yumble. Croissant.

       Mmm!

       I prefer chocolate cake. But only if there's no lasagne.
lewisgirl, Oct 14 2002
  

       Yes please, and a piece of chocolate cake without lasagne and a chocolate-covered crumble and some cheesecake.
FarmerJohn, Oct 14 2002
  

       What's all this crumbling about?
blissmiss, Oct 14 2002
  

       One sugar, please. No milk. Or water. Or tea.   

       FarmerJohn has hit the nail on the head there, i.e. fruit does get in the way of a good cheesecake. It also spoils an otherwise delicious trifle, and positively ruins the most delectable of upside-down cakes. Down with fruit. Now if only everything was toffee flavoured...

       // flour + lard + sugar. not really anything to get excited about //   

       I beg to differ. But indeed. lemon meringue pie made with Hooch is quite delightful.   

       Croissant for you, chard.

       Yummy! I'll have some, here I'll give you a croissant in exchange.   

       Rods, I'd prefer coffee if you don't mind.

       I agree, the fruit is not necessarily the star ingredient in crumbles - but I don't think you could enjoy crumble crumble entirely on its own - it needs something, fruit, cream, custard - it doesn't matter. I'm wondering whether there is such a thing as a custard crumble. Could be quite nice.

       Poor man's custard crumble:   

       1. Empty a packet or two of custard cream biscuits into a plastic bag. Tie bag.   

       2. Pick up bag. Smash bag against table. Repeat until contents of bag are suitably crumbly.   

       3. Untie bag. Pour contents of bag into bowl. Enjoy.

       Yes. And cheesecake. Infact forget the crumble or the crumble crumble and just give me cheesecake and a spoon.. Soon to be followed by a diabetic coma, but i'm willing to cross that bridge when it comes.
