Christmas Crumble

For a superb and easy pudding that makes you feel festive with every spoonful, we’d recommend this one. We found it in an old book of recipes from farmhouse kitchens in Westray and Papa Westray.

This easy pudding that makes you feel festive with every spoonful. We served it piping hot with ice cream – delicious!

We love that Christmas Crumble uses easy to find ingredients and that it only takes about ten minutes to prepare and another half hour in the oven.

The Christmas Crumble recipe was contributed by Marjory Drever of Russland in Westray. We served it piping hot with ice cream – delicious! Thank you Marjory.
