Hi smile
I'm an adult fussy eater. I like crumble, not mad keen on cooked apple or rhubarb though. I pick the lumps out like a child! Nobody to tell me off now see!

I literally like all other cooked fruits except pears. Which alternative crumble is nicest please?

You can do crumble with tinned peaches.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad crumble. Though I do prefer a mixture, and like apple and rhubarb or plum and peach. Maybe blackberry and strawberry would work?

Gooseberry crumble is nice and if you want something really indulgent then try banana caramel/toffee

Also, have you considered savoury crumbles? This works really well with the creamy filling that you would normally put in chicken pie - only downside is that you can't really have custard with it without getting odd looks!

Plums should be cobblered not crumbled

Caramelised pineapple with coconut and orange zest topping.

Raspberry is good.

Mixed berries. I use a pack of frozen mixed berries straight from the freezer.

I like any berries in mine. I've done all strawberries before with almonds in the crumble and that's nice.

Also peaches I agree. Sometimes I do peach and raspberry.

I put different things in the crumble too if I have things to use up, nuts, biscuits or cereal for example. My last one had a sachet of golden syrup flavour oat so simple in it.
