Gooseberry Crumble

When the kids were eating, sorry looking, for strawberries, they came back with a bowl of gooseberries from the bush in our fruit patch. They asked if we could have a gooseberry crumble for pudding that evening so we set about making one.

It is very easy and turned out to be delicious. One of the kids wished he hadn't had the custard on it as it took away from the taste of the gooseberries!

Gooseberry crumble is a super pudding that our kids love - you can use less sugar if, like us, you prefer the sour gooseberry taste.

The children did all of this except for the oven work which I helped out with. They enjoy weighing out the ingredients and were fighting over who would make the crumble mixture.
