Mixed Berry and Apple Crumble

I always think that a good crumble makes a real comfort dish. My mother regularly made apple crumble and I always loved it. A crumble is a dessert that can be easily made up while waiting for the dinner to cook. Alternately you could have the crumble made in advance and simply assemble the dish just before cooking. I prefer to serve it with custard but it is also delicious served with cream or ice-cream.
