Strawberry & Blueberry Crumble

1 Reviews

About the bake

A little bit of marzipan adds flavour to a simple crumble topping, delicious spooned over  fresh fruity strawberries and blueberries and served with vanilla ice cream. If you don't have individual crumble dishes, you can make the crumble in one large dish instead and cook for 30-35 minutes until golden. Keep an eye on the crumble as the marzipan can brown quickly, so loosely cover the top with foil if needed.
