Bake of the week! 09/02/2014

When it's cold, wet and windy there are a few bakes that can really warm you up and at least brighten up your belly, and a good crumble is definitely one of these. Today mine uses Gooseberries and Apple which is a favorite of ours since we had it on holiday a few years ago. And it sure does look yummy too...

The Gooseberries are quite tart so will need a good amount of sugar to balance is out, but they're flavour pops in your mouth. It's not a combination that most people will have heard of, but i urge you to find some Gooseberries because you need this in your life!
