Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.Toss the gooseberries with the caster sugar, spread in the bottom of a medium ovenproof baking dish with 2 tbsp water.
  2. To make the crumble, put the flour, butter and a big pinch of salt in a bowl. Rub together with your fingertips until you have a rough breadcrumb texture. Mix in the demerera sugar.
  3. Scatter the crumble topping evenly over the gooseberries. Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes until top is pale golden and crunchy and the gooseberries bubbling. You can also give the crumble a quick flash under a hot grill to give the top an extra browning if you like.

It is what it is, a good, old fashioned gooseberry crumble! The level of sweetness was just right (there was still a hint of shaprness from the gooseberries). We like a lot of crumble topping so I did one and a half times the amount of topping.

Excellent recipe, brought back lots of nice childhood memories. Nice simple recipe that was not too sweet.
