Can anyone give me a quick reminder of proportion of sugar,butter and flour in crumble topping please.
(Jeez,you'd think I could remember-it's the only pudding I can make.)

It's equal I think - made one on Sat with 3oz (75g) of each?

DS keeps bringing blackberries home from his walk home and insisting I make blackberry & apple crumble (apples in garden)

Let me know if you find otherwise!!

I use about a third more flour than butter, and slightly less sugar than butter IYSWIM.
Moondog - you're shattering my image of you as one of the MN foody cookery queens.

Oh - you're right - just checked and it was:

3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. firm butter

c= cup by the way

Oh I am turquoise! <preen preen>

It's just that I make puddings about three times a year (either cheescake or crumble) and I never remember the bloody proportions.
(Says she,flailing madly)

Anyway,who needs puddings when the shops here are groaning with fantastic baklava of every sort
I'm only doing a crumble because I'm entertaining a crowd of homesick expats.

Thanks girls-I'll go with something approximating all of these.
