The fruit crumble has earned a dedicated following. Few can resist the deliciously satisfying contrast of textures between the soft, baked filling and the crunchy yet melt-in-the-mouth topping. Equally popular is the crumble's close relative the cobbler. It's only fruit? Think again. In Crumbles you will find the wickedly indulgent Caramelized Pear & Bourbon Crumble and the Italian-inspired Peach & Amaretti. Treat yourself to a spicy Ginger Nectarine Crumble or, if your taste is more traditional, choose the Classic Blackberry & Apple. Maxine's Cranberry Apple Cobbler is hard to beat but in Cobblers you'll find plenty of inspiration. Try a Summer Berry Cobbler with Lemon Scones or, for those with a sweet tooth who don't like to share, bake the Individual Pear, Maple & Pecan Cobblers. Why stop at crumbles and cobblers? Try variations on the theme in Bettys, Crisps, Slumps & More. Enjoy the tropical Pineapple Rum Betty with Coconut & Macadamia Nut Topping. Fancy something more grownup? Either a Cranberry Streusel Crisp or a rich Cherry Clafoutis would be the perfect choice. Finally, in On the Side there are simple recipes for delicious accompaniments including, Custard and home-made Vanilla Ice Cream. *Maxine Clark presents a delicious selection of classic and new recipes - an essential addition to any pudding lover's bookshelf. *Perfect for family meals or serving to friends, Crumbles & Cobblers are the ultimate in comford food! *Mouthwatering photography by Peter Cassidy.
