    Oh my, this was delicious! I will make it again. I wasn't sure, because it is so easy . . .but everyone loved it! Including ME!  -  21 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Wow is all I can say about this. My mum and I made it this afternoon, and we just tried it, and it's amazing. I've just linked this over to a friend who can't wait to make it either. It was so easy to make. As there are 3 people to eat this, we halved the recipe down and rounded it up the best we could. But it worked really really well. Would make this again and no half it as it would still get eaten. Especially by us!!!!  -  19 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Not sure that the recipe proportions are right. Started to follow it and didn't end up with breadcrumbs. Compared to other crumbles this has more fat than flour! So I have just added more flour until it starts resembling something like a crumble. Yet to cook it, so can't review the taste, but that is certainly not crumble unless adapted.  -  19 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
