When it comes to Great British cooking, there is one dish that has been a family favourite for decades - the humble crumble.
Crumbles became popular in Britain during World War II when the crumble topping was an economical alternative to pies due to shortages of pastry ingredients as the result of rationing. To further reduce the use of rationed flour, fat and sugar, breadcrumbs or oatmeal could be added to the crumble mix. The dish was also popular due to its simplicity.
With its humble origins and spirit of British frugality, we can't think of a more perfect dish for turning leftovers from a Sunday Roast into a bowl of pure comfort.
