I found the topping to be very wet also. There's far too much butter for the dry ingredients. I added a more flour and more oats. I also doubled the mixture as my dish was big & shallow. I didnt use as much sugar as the recipe stated. It was a nice dessert but better crumble recipes out there.

Made this yesterday to use up a few apples and threw in some blueberries too. The crumble took a lot longer in the oven than specified to really crisp up - we just kept checking till it looked to our liking - and the final result was very tasty, though a little sweet for my taste. I think next time I make it (and I will make it again) I will only put one tbsp of sugar in with the crumble mix maybe.

My first attempt ever at crumble and it was very nice. I halved the butter (actually used marge) and used apples, blackberries and brown sugar - yum!

Easy recipe, but the crumble mixture was very wet and a bit sparse. Comparing to other crumble recipes, there was a much higher proportion of butter in this so I added quite a bit more flour and it turned out really well. I used a bit less sugar, dessert spoons rather than tbsps and it was just the right sweetness.
