Tonight’s recipe is a family favourite – Apple and Rhubarb Crumble!  I couldn’t decide whether to go for apple and rhubarb so in typical me fashion I went for both.  I always associate crumble with Brora in the North of Scotland – when we were little we used to go there in our caravan for summer holidays.  The golf club always served the best crumble ever in the humble opinion of my Dad and I who are both dessert (and anything sweet actually) aficionados.

So if you are on a restricted diet and craving crumble then this recipe is for you.
