Crumbles are always a treat, but make them with gooseberries and you'll enjoy them even more. Sweet, tart and with a deliciously buttery topping, this is the perfect way to use up a glut of gooseberries.
- 500g gooseberries
- 175g plain flour
- 85g each caster sugar and light brown sugar
- 85g butter
- 2 tbsp. water
Slice the top and bottom off of the gooseberries. Toss with caster sugar and 2 tbsp. water. Spread in the bottom of a baking dish.
In a bowl, rub the butter and plain flour together until they resemble breadcrumbs. Stir in the brown sugar. Sprinkle over the gooseberries.
Bake in a 160C oven for 45 minutes or until golden and crisp on top. Leave to cool for around 10 minutes before serving.
