I made this with gluten free flour and it was amazing. Great recipe!

It was really delicious however I think the recipe calls for way too much butter in the crumble. I had a thick layer of butter around the edges and it didn’t crumble/cook properly, I only had a crumbly crust on top

This is a super easy recipe. Yet it was delicious. Next time I will reduce a bit more sugar. My whole family loved it. Thank you.

Absolutely delicious ! I added blueberries as well & brown sugar suggested by the previous comment. I wanted to give this recipe 5 stars , but it didn’t work . So my rating is definitely 5 ! So easy

Natalie Fawcett

Excellent easy recipe, we used brown sugar to replace the castor sugar and this gave it a nice caramel taste…
