Not Apple Crumble

Crumble, I think

A pot of Ambrosia Apple Crumble.

Why we bought this, I have no idea…

Why I ate it, I have even less of an idea…

Basically custard with apple and a crumble topping. The kind of dessert you can put in a lunch box.

And yes it was actually the sort of dessert you could put straight in the bin…

The custard was okay, as prepared custard often is, the apple was just tasteless chunks and as for the crumble… well I hoped that would be the bit that made this nice, no luck there! Wasn’t even proper tasting crumble, it was over sweety powdery crunchy stuff.

Won’t be buying that again!


Nothing quite like a trifle.

That combination of sponge, fruit, jelly custard and cream that brings back the memories of childhood flooding back.

Oh and don’t forget that sprinkling of hundreds and thousands to top it off.

At Christmas you would add sherry for a little bit of a luxury and use flaked almonds for the topping.
