The fruit crumble has earned a dedicated following. Few can resist the deliciously satisfying contrast of textures between the soft, baked filling and the crunchy yet melt-in-the-mouth topping. Equally popular is the crumble's close relative the cobbler. It's only fruit? Think again. In Crumbles you will find the wickedly indulgent Caramelized Pear and Bourbon Crumble and the Italian-inspired Peach and Amaretti. Treat yourself to a spicy Ginger Nectarine Crumble or, if your taste is more traditional, choose the Classic Blackberry and Apple. Maxine's Cranberry Apple Cobbler is hard to beat but in Cobblers you'll find plenty of inspiration. Try a Summer Berry Cobbler with Lemon Scones or, for those with a sweet tooth who don't like to share, bake the Individual Pear, Maple and Pecan Cobblers. Why stop at crumbles and cobblers? Try variations on the theme in Bettys, Crisps, Slumps and More. Enjoy the tropical Pineapple Rum Betty with Coconut and Macadamia Nut Topping. Fancy something more grownup? Either a Cranberry Streusel Crisp or a rich Cherry Clafoutis would be the perfect choice. Finally, in On the Side there are simple recipes for delicious accompaniments including, Custard and home-made Vanilla Ice Cream.
