If I wanted to make it a bit different, what could I add?

How about porridge oats? or coconut maybe?

or something else?

to go with some berries & apple

Apple - I'd add some oats and cinnamon!

Oats, cinnamon, ground ginger, chopped nuts? I found a great recipe for a flapjack crumble here and added some chopped walnuts to it too.

I always do half & half flour and oats and then add in a good dollop of cinnamon. Demerara sugar too, for a bit of crunch.

i add wheatgerm, oatmeal or porridge oats, cinnamon or mixed spice (not altogether though!) I avoid nuts for allergy reasons but the flavour would be good. Mixed spice is good for berries and apple. Always demerara sugar sprinkled on top.

BIL does one with added crushed Frosties which is interesting!

I have a recipe for a crumble topping for apple which includes cheese - I was sceptical about it but tried it and it was nice, you can't taste the cheese. I can look it out if you like and I'd agree with oats.

I do half flour half crushed almonds, a spinkle of cinammon/mixed spice and some demerara sugar. Then poke little holes in it with a skewer. The holes create 'pockets' where the sugar goes all toffee like - yummy!

spices, chopped nuts, different sorts of sugar, oats, muesli, a crumbled weetabix or two, some biscuit crumbs (amaretti biscuits are lovely! - a different crumble every time!

Here you are lucysmam, 130g plain flour, 75g unsalted butter, 50g porridge oats, 150g golden/Demerera sugar, 150g Cheshire cheese.

Sift flour, rub in butter to breadcrumbs
Stir in oats and 110g of the sugar
Break the cheese and scatter on top of the apples then put the crumble on top of the cheese.
Bake at 190/gas mark 5 for 25 mins or until the top is golden brown.
Let me know what it tastes like.
