The compote made it rather sweet for my liking - but the world's best 5 star topping which we've used for other crumbles.

I was disappointed to find that the topping had not cooked because the fruit mix was too moist. I hadn't realised that Bonne Maman also do a compote as well as preserves. It looks as if the compote is only stocked by Waitrose. Since we do not live near a Waitrose, I won't be doing this again in a hurry. This is a shame since the topping tasted very good - I shall reuse this!

Very easy and effective for a dinner party. Felt rather like I was cheating too much though using tinned apricots. Also rather too sweet for my husband - maybe it could do with the addition of some citrus...

The instructions written in brackets were because this recipe was part of a meal for the weekend which included a Lemony roast chicken pie and "nearly Spring peas". It presumes you are making this dessert as part of this meal and is telling you to turn the heat down and put the crumble in when the pie comes out.

I made this for Mother's Day - very easy to do although I used a bit more flour since the crumble seemed to too buttery. Everyone really enoyed it and I will definitely be making it again.
