This is a genuine English recipe, and my personal favorite! The crumble is crumbly as opposed to crispy. Serve hot or cold with custard or light cream (either one having a thin, pouring consistency). You can also make this with peaches, blackberries, rhubarb, etc. (I've tried making it with strawberries and rhubarb, and it turned out wonderfully!)
